    Writing poetry is a great job, so one must read a lot of different poems, listening to other poets' audio tapes, and even write any style. Thanks.

    Poetry writing, to me, is the cheapest but the most elegant way of communicating your feelings to the world.....When the poet employs clear and simple diction, combines passion with classical themes, his message lives for centuries.....lets be clear as we can!

    I use to write late at night with some instrumental music on the background. That helps me relax and find the rythm I want my poem to have.
    I don't use any writing technique like rhymes or something. I just feel and write. Of course I read my poems again and again until I find something to complete them. I remember a poem I tried to write before I sent my book for publishing. It was unfinished because I couldn't find the exact words to express my feelings. I let myself listen to other poems (by different poets) that made me feel like the way I felt and I found the words to complete my poem and send my book to the publisher.

    My point of view says that writing is a must to everyone, so anyone can benefit greatly.

    I am not an English man I am belong to the Kuki community as well as very young to improve my poetry I am badly in need of one person from English man. And my proposal technique is I am now making a book of poetry dictionary of lexicon vocabulary and poetry school for India which is not so far available in India, because poemHunter will not end and for everlasting so many young boys and girls may earn some thing from poetry competition in the days to come.

    With my own vision and observation around my surroundings, meetings, and other occasions, I think about the various problems people faces and challenges they dealt with for a proper living. My most interested subject contains the human being's woes and sufferings and taking up the challenges of life through which I get an opportunity for a theme.
