    Looking at young Becker's poems reminds me what a struggle poetry writing was at first. Recall making myself write in iambics, which I sometimes still do. More and more I compose line by line, using Shorter lines for emphasis etc., and just get freer and freer. Am relieved to hear folk LIKE the 'content' of my verses and are not phased by all this 'freedom' of form. Have written a lot of 'religious' stuff recently but may well turn my attention more to space, both 'outer' and 'inner', from now on. Inner emotions especially.

    perfect timing

    Ladies & Gentlemen

    I have joined this site quite recently. This is an excellent site, which has given me an opportunity to post my poetic insights. Bad language is an integral part of any language. But there is no scope for it in poems, however good it rhymes. Derogatory words aimed at another person/culture/community is not commendable and it clearly show the deterioration of poetic language.

    Hi! Can you please comment on my poems 'Hell' and 'Do you believe? ' please, because I'd like to know whether it is worth entering them in a competition?
    Comments on my other poems would be very helpful too! Thanks!
