the cat from StarClan on the ground is Hollyleaf, with Lionblaze and Jayfeather. Silver stream is on the tree with Graystripe, and the stars spell STARCLAN. :3

Hey, Nightpaw! I removed the link because 1. it was set so that we can’t see it and 2. we prefer not to have Google drive/related links posted on the blog for moderation reasons (since the content is editable and BlogTeam has no way of verifying constantly that the content is still blog -appropriate). You’ll have to find another way to submit it!

What could make a better duo than the ghost-seer and the temporary ghost? I just really love Rootspring and Shadowsight. And I really really love ghosts! <3

can there be commentary for the art contest, like what the judges liked about the art. Could there also be an honorary mention?

To answer the question in your first comment, yes, deviantArt is okay!

As for the disappearing comments, your comments are not disappearing! All comments must be approved by a moderator in order to be publicly seen. I suspect that your browser is just having a moment and not showing you your pending comments ^^ Regardless, we can see all three of your attempts to post your entry, but seeing as only one is needed, I’ll delete the other two 🙂

Poetry entry (Sorry I didn’t include it on other comment but I just wrote it now):

Rustling leaves, freezing breeze, pouring rain,
Rabbits running, squirrels leaping, mice hiding, fish swimming
Stalk, climb, pounce, swim
Aim to hunt downwind
Slash of claws, feline applause
‘Give thanks to StarClan’, drag the catch back if you can

Step over scent, rivals decent
Cats running, warriors yowling, ‘paws cheering
Strike, pin, rake, win
Try to teach a lesson
Slash of claws, feline roars
‘The fight is done’, return to camp no matter if you lost or won

Heated debate, prey they ate
Sharpening claws, battle roars, honing skills, new thrills
Leap, bite, fight, survive
Win the fight for the clan
‘Retreat!’, get back to clan if you can

Murmured words, cats in hordes
Quiet cries, whispering lies, eyes glazed, thoughts a haze
Awake, moonhigh, tired, sunhigh
Prepare to say goodbye
Scrape of earth, laid under dirt
‘Virgil concludes’, prey is chewed

Rustling leaves, freezing breeze, pouring rain,
Rabbits running, squirrels leaping, mice hiding, fish swimming
Stalk, climb, pounce, swim
Aim to hunt downwind
Slash of claws, feline applause
Hunting resumes, no matter the mood

The Clan must go on.

The cats are Honeyfern, Poppyfrost, and Berrynose. Honeyfern is visiting Poppyfrost and Berrynose from StarClan and they are very happy to see her.
I chose to draw these cats because Honeyfern is my favorite Warrior cat. <3

Art submission timeeeee!!
This is Echosong with Frecklewish and Fidgetflake. Just a sweet little med cat reunion. comment image
And the poem – see if you can guess who the narrator is before it’s revealed!

The wind blows just the right way
My scent is concealed, my black-and-white fur on end
My pale amber eyes survey the landscape
The bright red squirrel stands no chance to my merciless paws…
Or so I tell myself.
I swiftly dart behind a rosebush, petals glistening in the afternoon dew
Everything Longtail taught me about hunting comes rushing back now…
Tread lightly, a little voice in my mind tells me, Don’t make a sound…
My tail streaming behind me and my belly close to the ground,
I spring towards the squirrel
At just the wrong moment, it sees me!
The squirrel zips away from my reach and the chase is on!
My paws nimbly carry me across the cool, swaying newleaf grass
The smooth blades cushion my paws and take me even faster
I’m sprinting now!
I must win this piece of prey for my Clan!
A sturdy oak looms tall before me;
I have to get there before this stupid squirrel does!
I must live up to my name!
I must be swifter than this little scrap of prey!
I grit my teeth and narrow my eyes
I clear my mind until there is nothing but determination
I sprint faster than I ever have – but not towards the squirrel…
Behind the tree it is headed towards;
I need to trap it before it can escape to wherever piece of crow-food it lives in!
Stupid furball! It doesn’t see a thing…
As the squirrel tries to scurry up the towering oak
I dart to the side just in time!
I spring in a graceful leap that seems to last moons
Suddenly, a dash of white fur emerges from the bushes and pounces
On MY prey!
I growl in frustration
‘Cloudtail! Any cat can see I was about to pounce on that stupid furball!’
He purrs and licks his chest
Eyes gleaming with satisfaction
‘You waited too long, Swiftpaw…
A worthy warrior would have pounced immediately,’
That’s it, no more excuses, I’m going all out…
It’s time for the extreme…

I hope you enjoyed! You have no idea how much I wanted to put a Blixemi reference in my poem
