These are the Poems of Garden Gnomes -- a place where poetry grows and flourishes in a supportive and encouraging environment. Please join us for our prompts and examples. Then, get writing.


1. HAVE FUN. The guidelines aren't meant to be restrictive. They are just to try to keep everyone on the same page.

2. HOW TO POST. Poems may be posted in the COMMENTS section for each prompt. You may also post to your personal blog and leave a link to your poem in the COMMENTS.

3. WHO MAY POST? Poem of Garden Gnomes is open to all poets, regardless of skill level, point of view, or age. As such, we encourage members to "keep it clean."  Our goal is to encourage and learn from one another. Hopefully we'll all gain a fresh understanding of the poetic process.

4.  "IN-FORM POET DAY." On occasion, we'll present a poetic form for your consideration and information. (More of a tutorial for some of the lesser known or invented forms).  We encourage you to try your hand at these forms, and we may choose to highlight one of your in-form poems on occasion.

5. BLOG HOPPING. We encourage you to visit the blogs of other poets regularly. Leave constructive and supportive comments. We want to nurture the expression of these written words.

6. QUESTIONS may be directed to our e-mail:   poeticbloomings@yahoo.com .

7. HAVE FUN.  Did we already say that?  Must be important. ;)

Any updates will be highlighted under that banner. We would like to establish a community of poets working for a common goal: the propagation of all things poetic. Plant your poetic seeds here, and allow them to bloom in our garden. We look forward to reading you. Poem on!
