All members should know about the change in profile policy to do with the about me section.
We would like to encourage our members to write a small biography in the about me section of their profile. Therefore people can know whose poetry they are reading and also lead to friendships which would lead to a closer family of poets. You can edit your profile and your about me biography at any time.
The ‘about me’ section is now required for new members to fill out before the greeters see the new members and are able to greet them therefore allowing new members full privileges.

Congratulations to Geezer for winning the July poetry contest Wonders Of The World.
Aussieland is Calling
by; Geezer
I'd like to live down-under
In Aussieland by the sea
With wallabies and waves of thunder
And Eucalyptus trees
The Outback filled with the songs
Of Kookaburra birds
And frog-filled billabongs
Grasslands and kangaroo herds
I'd listen through the night
To Aboriginal didgeridoos
Watch the sun come up bright
Look for spiders in my shoes
Ahhhh, the call of the wild
The Outback calling me
Me, a nature-child
A regular Croc Dundee
