The Authors Haunt is proud to present the 2011 Annual Poetry Anthology.  The theme for this year's anthology is "Ocean" and participating authors were invited to explore this theme in any way they saw fit.

A total of nine authors participated in this anthology, between them submitting twelve poems.  Those submissions are listed below in alphabetical order by title.  At the end of each poem you will see a feedback button linking directly to the topic where the poem is being discussed.  Authors here are not paid for their work, and the only reward they get for their skill and hard work is the thanks of grateful readers, so please take a moment to show your gratitude.
