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!


Some great comments this week, but a lot of you still aren’t leaving any. Going forward, in addition to the weekly drawing for Hive SBI and CCC tokens, we are going to start rewarding good comments with tokens and we are going to start producing a newsletter for this group that will feature a few poets per issue, but to be featured you must follow the group rules and leave at least two comments for every one poem you post. Please try to follow this rule.

There were a few standouts, however. @emmaba1, @joseitosanchezs, and @martinlazizi all gave over ten comments each. 1 Hive SBI to each of you for being outstanding members of the group.


For next week, @melinda010100 has very generously donated 500 ecency POINTS to the group for us to use. I will be giving these out to up to five people who leave the most (at least over the required amount of 2 for every poem you post) and the best comments.

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 17 people in the running for HIVE SBI and 9 people in the running for CCC tokens.

I threw you guys into a random picker

and the winner is…

For Hive SBI:

@davidbright - 3 SBI
@pregosauce - 2 SBI
@technicalart - 2 SBI
@elementm - 2 SBI
@myztiqakusuk - 1 SBI


For CCC tokens:

@hilbyguy - 500 CCC
@martinlazizi - 500 CCC
@technicalart - 500 CCC
@joseitosanchezs - 500 CCC
@davidbright - 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, Hive, NFTS, or something else, please get in touch with me. Look for me as dbooster#6252 on Discord.)

    Such a talented group! I posted the contest into the Ecency Discord.


    Thanks for the SBI and for keeping our poems visible 👍😊


    Appreciate so much the prize gifts @dbooster, but of course the greatest gift is that without your contests and channel, I would not be writing even the few poems that I get to. It is a true joy. Arigato!
