    I was fooling around on the computer the other day when I inserted a poem with images, music and animations into a flash movie. The results surprised me,

    Hey tfchuck ... Welcome! I don't know if you've been told before, but only poetry is allowed in the poetry forum. I've moved this thread to the "Books - Writing - Poetry Discussion Forum"

    Posting non-poetry threads in the poetry forum is against our forum rules.
    Much love to you
    Peace

    i was having a smoke behind the store that i work in the other day when i saw a little doll in a puddle. i felt sad for the doll and wrote this poem:

    Broken Dirty Doll

    there was a broken dolly in a puddle
    it was covered with mud and oil
    to think that once it brought such joy
    now it's a dirty, lost, discarded toy

    the little dolls destiny
    is like that of people, so many
    their fate in the hands of another
    i could've changed it, but why bother?

    its future lies, this cold rainy night
    on a gust of wind, in the thunder and light
    cars passing, people laughing
    but I hear muted screams,
    and have frightening dreams

    from a dirty little doll in a puddle

    i then made it into a flash file http://floetry.netfirms.com/dolly.html

    i especially enjoyed making this, because it's my first original poem.

    tfchuck...your work was great!
    you we're mentioning how
    to make money with your abilities
    ...I think you should look locally
    to poetry groups...there are a lot
    of poets who would love to have
    image and sound added to their work...
    possibly to their web pages...
    Great Concept!...I enjoyed the
    links thoroughly...I hope you
    pursue your craft!
