There we go. If you have time, check them out and see what you think. And if you like any, let the author know about it by leaving a great comment!


Comments were really great this week. Many of you went above and beyond and offered many great comments. Thank you! I’m sure everyone who got your great comments really appreciated them!

@joseitosanchezs, @martinlazizi, @repayme4568 all gave a huge number of comments, so 1 SBI to each of you!


Winner of Hive SBI and CCC

Remember, only people who gave two comments for every poem they posted are eligible for this contest. The only exception is that new poets are giving a pass their first week here.

Excluding myself, that puts 15 people in the running for HIVE SBI and 8 people in the running for CCC tokens.

I threw you guys into a random picker

and the winner is…

For Hive SBI:

@martinlazizi - 3 SBI
@raj808 - 2 SBI
@emmaba1 - 2 SBI
@joseitosanchezs - 2 SBI
@veektur21 - 1 SBI


For CCC tokens:

@davidbright - 500 CCC
@jacco25 - 500 CCC
@martinlazizi - 500 CCC
@maylenasland - 500 CCC
@joseitosanchezs - 500 CCC



(if you aren’t sure what SBI is, it’s kind of lifetime payment system. You can read about it here)

And thank you all for your wonderful poems!

Next Week ~ Next Prize

Next week will be the same reward — shares of Hive SBI and CCC. For CCC, you must use the #creativecoin tag. For both SBI and CCC, you must comment.

The exact amount of Hive SBI depends on how many poets submit poems for the week.

0–9 poets - 1 SBI
10–19 poets - 5 SBI (split 2–2–1)
20–49 poets - 10 SBI (split 3–2–2–2–1)

(Note, these numbers don’t include @moeknows or myself.)

So if you want a chance for Hive SBI, go write a poem! If you want a chance for a lot of Hive SBI, go recruit others (and write a poem)! Spread the word, upvote and share this post to make it more visible, contact poet buddies on Discord and try to talk them into joining our group.

Just remember the rules:

  1. Comment on two other poems for every one that you post
  2. Make it a good comment (not just “great poem!”)
  3. If you offer criticism, keep it gentle and polite and remember the golden rule of criticism: say at least two positive things for every one thing you criticize.

Anyone caught breaking these rules will not be eligible for the reward.

I’m looking forward to reading everyone’s new poem in this next week.

(Note: If you’d like to donate anything for the contest, such as Hive Engine tokens or Hive, please get in touch with me. Look for me as dbooster#6252 on Discord.)

    Thank you very much for this. I am new to this platform and excited to partake in this competition weekly!!
    Let's goooo.


    Thank you for submitting your poetry!


    Entirely my pleasure! I'm so glad to be part of this community. I look forward to learning a lot and seeing other's perspectives of life.


    Wow I got lucky again on the SBI wheel of fortune 😂

    Many thanks for all you do keeping a poetry community alive on hive @dbooster & all the great poets/commenters.


    Glad you got lucky again, buddy. And we are all very lucky to get your fantastic poems every week. Thanks for being a member! 😃


    Thank you so very much for the mention and the 2SBI. But please, I do not really understand the significance of it. I went through the attached link about it but didn't really understand what was there. Could you please explain better to me its use?
    Once again, thank you!
    I'm so glad to be here.


    Lifetime votes to support your Hive journey. A pending balance dedicated to your support will gradually grow, and then a vote is delivered whenever the pending balance gets large enough.


    Thank you very much for this!
    What about the CCC?


    That's a separate token that would appear if you use a supporting wallet (leodex, peakd wallet, hive-engine, tribaldex, keychain).
