There we go. If you have time, check them out and see what you think. And if you like any, let the author know about it by leaving a great comment!


Unfortunately comments were way down this week. But in fairness, a large reason for that is that most of our regular poets didn’t submit anything this week. On the plus side, we had a lot of new faces this week. That’s fantastic!

Just a note to you new guys: this week you get a pass, but starting with your next poem, please give two comments on other poems for every poem you post.

One guy who did return to offer tons of comments was @joseitosanchezs. Amazing effort, as usual! 2 SBI to you for the great job!


Winner of Hive SBI

Remember, only people who gave two comments for every poem they posted are eligible for this contest. The only exception is that new poets are giving a pass their first week here.

Excluding myself, that puts 12 people in the running for 5 shares of Hive SBI (divided 3 ways) this week.

I threw you guys into a random picker

and the winner is…

@hilbyguy - 2 SBI
@cesarj21 - 2 SBI
@yen1503 - 1 SBI



(if you aren’t sure what SBI is, it’s kind of lifetime payment system. You can read about it here)

And thank you all for your wonderful poems!

Next Week ~ Next Prize

Next week we have new rewards! If you missed the announcement (go read it), the Creative Coin Fund is joining with us to reward 5000 CCC tokens each week. This will be in addition to the shares of Hive SBI.

Because the amount of tokens they are providing will be constant, and because I don’t feel comfortable holding any back in my account, the CCC given will be constant. The Hive SBI given, however, will still vary depending on how many poets we get each week.

The Hive SBI scale will remain the same

0–9 poets - 1 SBI
10–19 poets - 5 SBI (split 2–2–1)
20–49 poets - 10 SBI (split 3–2–2–2–1)

The CCC given will always be 1000 each to five different people.

(Note, these numbers don’t include @moeknows or myself.)

Just remember the rules:

  1. Comment on two other poems for every one that you post
  2. Make it a good comment (not just “great poem!”)
  3. If you offer criticism, keep it gentle and polite and remember the golden rule of criticism: say at least two positive things for every one thing you criticize.

In addition, to be elegable for CCC tokens, you must use #creativecoin as one of the tags on your post.

Anyone caught breaking these rules will not be eligible for the reward.

I’m looking forward to reading everyone’s new poem in this next week.

(Note: Please get in contact with me if you’d like to donate any Hive tokens or other rewards. Look for me as dbooster#6252 on Discord.)
