    I was sitting in my room last night when I heard the news that Jerry was gone. My little brother came in and told me. I haven't been on MC in a while, but I had to come and go through this with you guys! I thought about a lot of things that night, and I have an idea.

    The Muppeteers have said repeatedly that they don't want young people just copying what they do (I"m not being mean about fan stuff when I say this) so I have this idea for a thread where aspiring creative people of all kinds can post bits and pieces of non-muppet stuff they've done and get it critiqued. I thought this up because one thing I learned from the Muppets is is that creativity is one of the best ways to inspire people. I think that when the original Muppeteers have all passed, they will want us to have unique ideas of our own, and remember their creative legacy while at the same time creating our own.

    I probably haven't explained this very well. I love fanfiction and fanart ( why would I have written my stuff otherwise?) I just think that the muppeteers (Jerry was a member of this site) like jerry, Jim, and Richard, would have liked to see what universes we could dream up. Sinct they are gone now, I think one of the best ways to pay homage to them is to share these visions with each other-you know? :)

    Even if you are, like me, afraid that your non-fan story will get stolen by internet plagiarists, or just not all that comfortable with your creative ability, you can still come to offer your opinion or even post bits and pieces of your work! This thread is open to everyone! So go get your art supplies, writing paper, and whatever else it is that you use, if you think this is a good idea. We love you Jerry! *goes off to change signature to reflect Jerry's passing*

    Hey mokeygirl! I'm the S.H.E., and yes, I'm new here. Do you know how I can put an image not from the Net but from my desktop? Is that possible?

    Perhaps this could just be a place to post non-Muppet links to your other creative work, if one chooses. There are a brazilian sites already where people display things...photo sites, art sites, fic sites, comedy sites. Sure, why not, links away!

    Hogthrob: I am? Do I have to wear my Navy suit again for this?
    Strangepork: Only if you vant to be trown overboard! hee hee hee!

    (thought this should fit here…nowhere else to share it)

    A poem I wrote in 20 minutes during English class:

    Life is like a rainbow
    It slowly comes and goes
    It comes after a lightning storm
    And ever since, it grows

    Life is like a rainbow
    It's bright and colorful
    Not many people notice it
    But it's still quite meaningful

    Life is like a rainbow
    It's mysterious, as I'm told
    Somewhere is the land of Oz
    And somewhere, a pot of gold

    Life is like a rainbow
    Let you're colors burst
    Though life can be quite hard sometimes
    Remember, it's never the worst

    Yeah, it was. Profound, but it had a Suess-like rythm to it that made me smile.

    Thank you!

    And now, something I wrote while at the beach yesterday. You probably seen it in another thread.

    Sitting at the beach, on a wooden plank. Lovers walking 'side a riverbank.
    Waves breaking in, and ships passing by. Little stars twinkle in the sky.

    Very nice poems Vincent. You're quite a wonderful poet. :)

    Ever think of writing some Muppet poems and posting them in a Vincent's Muppet Poems thread in the fan fiction and art section?

    Thank you!

    I don't know, depends on how many Muppet poems I write. Currently: 0

    A little something for The Creature Calamity Club. I really enjoy writing short little rhymes lately.

    Sunny sky, clouds running 'round
    Birds fly, no one around
    Sun hanging high, my face, not a frown
    A campfire nearby, cheerful light, joyful sound

    I have afternoon and night, why not morning? Something I wrote in 5 minutes:

    Foggy, and blue
    Bird songs, and dew
    Here comes the sun
    I welcome you

    Bright, and yellow
    Hills, so mellow
    Here comes the morning
    No more sorrow

    I also have a Muppet poems thread.
    (advertising in threads :p)

    Oh boy, poetry slam! :excited: Let me try one:

    Suo mente filorum
    Suo intra vulnerium
    Sursum deque
    Emendare Cordem​
    amici boni

    You like it? I call it a Latin Haiku. Here's what it means in English:

    Sewing the threads to the mind
    Sewing, sewing, the wound inside
    Up and down, so!​
    To make amends, oh!​
    The heart of a good friend

    It's a Wobbler's song, especially in the Old Whistle. You're on your own to translate it in Spanish or some other language. :cool:

    My last three poems are based on real-life.

    How I started writing poems:

    It all began
    On a sunny day
    School is in
    And the day passed halfway

    Our English teacher
    With a smirk
    Gave us all
    Some extra work

    To write a poem
    Short or long
    Just to prove
    Our English is strong

    I got some paper
    Pen and ink
    Figuring out rhymes
    Think and rethink

    I wrote and wrote
    With determination
    A masterpiece is finished
    I got satisfaction

    From that moment on
    Writing poems, I love
    Endlessly, I write
    I don't need a shove

    Very nice again. I love how you never seem to force rhymes like some people do, you just let it all flow together.

    I kinda debated on weither to post this, but anyway, a extremely random poem coming up:

    Why am I here
    I don't really know
    And what is it that
    Makes my curiosity grow

    Where is the step
    That's halfway down
    And where did I put
    My mom's new sleeping gown

    Why does a Merry
    Go 'round and 'round
    And why dies an apple
    Fall down to the ground

    Which one came first
    The egg or the chick
    And why does the rain
    Make small children sick

    Why do birds fly
    Above, not beneath
    And how come animals
    Don't brush their teeth

    There are still more questions
    It's not over, my friend
    But if I keep asking on
    This poem will never end

    At the rate I'm writing, I might need a separate thread…

    Written on the bus on my way home from school.

    City night
    Sparkling light
    People passing by
    With delight

    Clear moonlight
    Shining white
    Lights turning out
    Almost midnight

    I wrote this poem when I was a kid:

    Opossum, opossum,
    You bloom like the blossom
    Through the night
    Without a fright

    But in the day
    You would go away
    And when you play dead,
    My heart will shed.

    A little silly, maybe, but from there, I knew I could write personal poetic expressions. :cool:
