    Hi Pen, I just found this thread you started and since there are still a few weeks left to submit I'll give it a go, but it will take a little time. Looks very tricky. Only our Pendragon's clever noodle could come up with such a form!

    O.K., Pen. I gave it a try. This turned out to be fun. Neat form.

    Again paradise lost. Open gates closed. Once possible, it is now
    Ending. Never renewed kisses, and
    Again once spoken
    Promises forgotten, and
    Again once open
    Blossoms closed,
    And spring turned
    Winter-like.
    Is love perfect ever?

    Ever perfect love is
    Like winter
    Turned spring, and
    Closed blossoms
    Open once again,
    And forgotten promises
    Spoken once again,
    And kisses renewed, never-ending.
    Now is it possible? Once closed gates open lost paradise again.

    Orion. I have Smiley Central downloaded. I chose the ones I really liked, sent them to my Photobucket account and copied the shortcuts. Took time, but it was worth it!

    Lightbulb Pizza

    This was cool! here we go..

    Left then right turned once, and lightly warmed was enough
    circles round flipped and set drifting high
    floating, spinning, falling
    table meets bread
    rising low, and lay flat
    brown around red, swims spread
    thin green or white stripe
    floats foam white, brown, toasted
    vapor rising, breath
    Pizza

    Pizza
    breath, rising vapor
    toasted brown white foam, floats
    stripe white or green,
    thin spread swims red, around brown flat
    lay and low rising
    bread meets table
    spinning, floating, falling
    high drifting set, and flipped round circles
    Enough was warmed lightly, and once turned right then left

    I must say the poets are quite good here. You are going to make my decision very difficult, which I consider Fantastic!

    OK, Pen. I worked on this long enough. Not sure if it's any good, but it was fun, in a difficult sort of way.

    Once

    Once, Red Knight rode lance pitched
    Steeling his consanguineous neighbor
    Lovely damsel, hair blonde flowing,
    Sweetly talking, roughly riding.
    Mysterious castle draped by fog
    They lay, arms, legs, whispers
    Until sun rising.
    Vows love, marriage, lives
    Together.

    Together,
    Lives, marriage, love vows.
    Rising sun until
    Whispers, legs, arms, lay they.
    Fog by draped castle, mysterious.
    Riding roughly, talking sweetly,
    Flowing blonde hair, damsel lovely.
    Neighbor consanguineous his steeling.
    Pitched lance, rode Knight Red, once.
    LET THERE BE LIGHT
