Somewhere a server
Spams my gynecologist.
I use Shelfari.

Collections due soon.
Being snowed in sounds good, but...

All downtimes will end soon
Back to not working...

Seasons come and go
But taggings never complete
'Farmboy Saves World' NEXT!

Yesterday's crocus
lies hidden by spring snowdrift-
still my hopes endure :-)
gwernin
But no one must see
all my birdwatching manuals!
Hide all your books here.
gemmation
LibraryThing
into social network absorbing
book data
Proclus
dreams melt with the dawn;
where words should be, still silence-
meaningless and cold.
gwernin
How can I sort books?
Click on the blue headers, click
again to reverse.
readafew
Cutlass, cannon, argh!
The never-ending battle.
Splitters and lumpers.
larxol
yesterday's sunshine
has vanished in mist and snow --
disappointment's tears.
gwernin
All the books you've read,
an endless field of poppies;
Try UnSuggester!
Felius
Google’s not evil.
Yet the wide boot treads heavy
in new violets.
larxol
to bed by candlelight -
perhaps tomorrow's sunrise
will lighten our hearts.
gwernin
A perfect orchid
complemented by a twin;
Try BookSuggester!

beside this magic basket?

A place to put anything!

Only two more days!
You know it can't be longer -
when but April 1st?
gwernin
Grab one of our widgets.
You will be the envy of
The bookish blogosphere.
timspalding
Two hundred books ain't
nearly enough, so buy that
paid account today!
megacoupe
for a while we heard
echoes of far-off battle -
why now the silence?
gwernin
When autumn seas change
Scurvy dogs to lubbers, aye,
Get a blog widget.
timspalding
Are pirate haikus
truly art? Or attempts to
bring meaning to bilge?
megacoupe
Collections haikus?
I really love all you guys:
LibraryThing's special!
gwernin (quoting ablachly)
Chrysanthemums are
Nice, but I prefer suitors
Send me a CueCat.
timspalding
Pastafarian TIM
Blows hot and cold but we know
Pirates Rule L.T.
Reading_fox
My books, collecting
nothing but dust. When will these
Collections go live?
fyrefly98
Search "Miskatonic
University" to add
books by their covers!
megacoupe
Please use your Noodles
Make LT an easier place
in heavy weather.
Reading_fox
It's heretical,
but I don't really need 'em.
Tags work fine for me. :-P
fyrefly98
For all your problems
like digging snow in Winter
help comes by TALKing.
Reading_fox
Ah, hidden Treasures?
Well, no book is an island
on LibraryThing.
jcbrunner
Surreptitiously
launched at midnight: a wond'rous
gift upon waking.

keep listing ad lib
or tag on the contrary
either means something
krishh
New to LibraryThing.
The day is gone. Tomorrow,
A new boss awaits.

With pomp and fanfare,
unveiled one fine afternoon.
Dancing in the streets.

We tag branch and leaf
of "about" and "my" to build
our folksonomy

Two more weeks, dear friends,
two weeks! Collective breath held:
uh oh. Feeling faint...

who share my niche interests?
Search for a group here

The seasons go by
Tagging and cataloging
distracted from work

Once this thing goes live,
cD takes a holiday?
I hear Ode to Joy.

Seven swans swimming,

Signs of spring labor -
With every false contraction
ten thousand hearts leap

blaggard book swollgin' half-breed
son of a TagMash!

In morning air tweets
of anticipation flit:
“Twaiting Collections”
SilentInAWay
Haiku on Combining A book I have loved
Now shared with many reader friends
Becomes a treasure

Poets, Pirates! Shun
he who first cries “Collections!”

work combination cannot
be explained in verse.

In Portland, Maine lay
the Dread Pirate Spalding's den.
(Treasure be coined there!)

is not to be combined with
the pop-up version.

must simmer for months before
it's ready to eat.
SilentInAWay
Translations fair game?
Depends on your dinner party:
Don't combine the Greeks.
sabreuse
Abuse ye not Dread
Spalding and crew as they board
a wayward server.
SilentInAWay
Does anyone know
if we’re Waiting for Godot
or The Great Pumpkin?
SilentInAWay
We do not combine
a last name with a full name.
It breeds confusion.
tardis
Under skull 'n bones
the Shelfari plunders all.
Yet she remains poor.
SilentInAWay
We promise you, Tim,
once collections have arrived
we'll still tag our books
SilentInAWay
Combined works, crystals
of raw social potential.
Don't lump where I split!

SilentInAWay
Dread Pirate Spalding's
Motto: Work Combination;
World Domination!

cold, yet still I catalog
I should be in bed

After brief down time,
A chance to read and savor:
Features now revealed.
mkjones
Be ye addicted
to combining, matey? Join
Combiners! anon.
SilentInAWay
Oh no I've run short
Already tagged two hundred
now it's time to pay
sengels
Perused but not owned,
And possessed yet not read, all
Welcome to now add.
mkjones
Library 2.0 Common Knowledge is
Uncommonly addictive
Leaves lie yet unraked

Patient attitude makes one
a better person.

It seemed to be close
Two weeks ago and more, but
Now all is silence.

Haikus are but a
Temporary distraction.

The long-awaited tool
I'm not holding breath

winter is now past
a long wait grows yet longer
will April bring gifts?
staffordcastle
teacups are empty
many wait with bated breath -
a watched pot won’t boil

concatenation

divide and conquer -
scattered libraries will be
reunited soon

For an Elephant
Gestation's 22 months;
We'd have one and change.

Fading to nothing.

can free this feature.

LT works best with tags
unique as summer meadow's flowers
who needs collections anyway?

An eon is ancient time
when TIM first posted news that
they will be here, soon!

Tree limbs in the wind.

Perfect collections?
Another idea in fractal mode
How long do we wait?

Scales of balance
will it work as we demand?
How long do we wait?
reading_fox
Yet another day
Logged into LibraryThing
No collections here
system13
I click on the link
I look at "Your Library"...
Still no collections!
system13
Should we change the word?
Maybe the word "soon" should mean:
It will never come.
system13
winter's credit crunch
promotes spring's most popular
@library_book
gemmation
collections reveal
my library's paucity
more "wishlist" than "bought"

Will have to get full time job
