    E A Poe once stated that a long or epic poem was a contradiction. I am inclined to agree for many purposes in poetry...but I have a soft spot for prophetic and other kinds of long-Biblicalish-narrative...

    What are your aims for writing long poems? or on the other side for writing particularly short or medium-sized peoms?

    What I do when I am getting ready to start a poem,
    I act as though I were speaking to someone/others
    face-2-face.
    I like to write my words in a simple format,
    making it easy for the reader to understand what I am
    trying to express. I write about topics we all basically know of.
    I have always channeled my thoughts and emotions
    thru my poetry....meaning if there is something I need
    to say, but can't find the right way to say it,
    or I am feeling nervous to say it....
    I state it in a poem.
    Take it Lite,
    Linda

      do things that will put a poetic vocabulary in your mind, maybe your words just need new forms... (basically just start reading, or painting, or looking at paintings, or reading about paintings, or ... more

    .. i wright with pen and Paper, but this is cool- 'the Computer'.
    I sometimes see poems and think…...
    How far in the levels is he/she.
    What do they mean? where have they been?
    -its all in the eye of the looker
    -the illusion has no limit… or dose it..
    go deep inside the black.. its a wonderfull trap.
