Will the poetry contest be up and running soon?
Sure will, and we are continuing it through October.
I was curious as to what kind of poetry contest this is? Are we supposed to write a poem about Herp's? or just any poem will do?
The poem is to be an original work about herps and should be a minimum of 5 lines, no max. If you wish to post an entry you may do so here in this thread and we will move your post over to the contest thread when it is repaired.
I'm really excited about this contest....herpcenter has some very good FRESH ideas....some of the other forums out there have their photo contests....but im never eligible because I dont own a bearded dragon....I've seen probably close to 15 different beardie contests....sad really
We have had photo contests but not species specific. We try to make the subject matter of any and all contests as available to ALL members as we can!
No more quick question. Should I or do I need to repost my poem. Because everytime the site went down I had to reregister my name? Or should I repost it to be on the safe side?
Hey Rebel, I would suggest you repost it. I dont think the contest was brought over and everyone will need to repost.
Please re-post your entries so everyone gets to read them, we will merge any new ones into the original thread once it is restored.
Kool hey it is again:
A REPTILE IS
A friend is always there
Someone to talk to, and
someone who listens.
Someone who you can sit
in total silence with and
and you both love it.
Sure a reptile may be
a little scaly, cold-blooded
and only wants to be out
But hey thats what most of us love
And once you get bit by that reptile bug
Trust me you'll never wnt another.
That is what a reptile is.

Feed Me! Feed Me!
It’s dark and warm on Saturday night
Curled up inside my igloo hide
I wait patiently although my belly rumbles with hunger
Still dark, still waiting
She’ll come home soon I know it
Ah, finally there she is!
The lights flick on and I catch the familiar scent
Mom is home! Hooray, Hooray!
I know what she brings me
Dinner will come! Yum!
The locks are unlatched and the lid is lifted
I poke my head out, my tongue flicking like crazy
It’s mom and she’s come to take me out
Out of the hide I slither, she picks me up
Across the room we go
Towards that familiar plastic container
The scent within drives me wild
I wiggle a little in anticipation
I know what’s in there!
Dinner is served!
I come face to face with my fuzzy treat
As mom snaps the lid on
I strike, my mouth open wide
Within minutes I am already closing my mouth over the tail end
Licking my scaly lips in satisfaction
My belly full
Soon it’s back into my home I go
Mom setting me gently back down
I head back into my igloo hide
Until next week, mouse…
A Poem for Princess
This poem i did for Rachel and Joe, for the lil one they lost,
A poem for Princess
your little life was special, it wasn't meant to be
they did there best to care for you, if only you could see,
you ran around your cage, chasing little crix,
you even did your very best, to eat the veggie mix.
The little time you had, you brought such joy and saddness,
why is life so cruel, its just damn right madness,
a beautiful bearded dragon, in heaven you shall be
as heaven only takes the best, you can bask on a golden tree,
it's time to say goodbye, to a wonderful little friend,
we didn't really want to, we wanted you to mend,
goodnight little darling, you will be sadly missed,
hope your a lot happier now, chasing all them crix.
