אי אפשר, או: לו הייתי אי ירוק בים

האי הצף, האי הבודד בלי תמונות כאלו ..לא הייתי שורד... כמה פסטורלי ורגוע להתבונן באיים ייחודיים שהאדם מתכנן. כמה מאמץ השקעה (ואיזה עלות!) אך לבנות אי צף, בים? נשמע כמו שטות! יש כל כך הרבה מקום בעולם ואנשים שצפים בייאוש מושלם אנשים בודדי...

Dear Z, thanks for your feedback -- it's a true honor to have someone in your capacity and experience joining us -- welcome aboard! With regard to your suspicions about being favorite by a bot, I can assure you we're not going to play such games here -- there will be no monkey business whatsoever on the new Poetry.com website. What happened is that our new system is structured in a way that when a member creates a new poet record, he/she automatically becomes a fan of this author. This is done so any further interaction around this poet, such as future favorites by other members or comments posted on its work, will be communicated to the originated member. I hope that helps, and I'm looking forward to seeing more of your beautiful work posted...

In regards to the searching for poems without knowing their title, we also provide the option to search by poet name or within the poem content by keywords.
