Celestial Nights (06/29/2007)


In keeping with the theme of the Celestial Nights story, each World Portal on the Linkshell Community site will be decorated with stalks of bamboo.
Thoughts are brought to another level of meaning when you put them into words. Just as the prince and princess in the legend expressed themselves through words, why not try composing a poem of your own?
Once these stalks of bamboo become heavy with poems and messages, something special might happen somewhere within Vana'diel!

Composing a Poem

Choose a theme from the list below, and write a poem in the haiku style describing events and emotions from your life in Vana'diel. A haiku is written with three lines of five, seven, and five syllables respectively.

Themes: Adventure, Friendship, City, Synthesis, Harvest, Dungeon, Battle, Chocobo, Conflict, Quest, Mission, Assault, Besieged

Seeking for party
Alright! I got an invite!
