    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.

    Not sure if this is the right forum. New to all this, and have a question. When a poem is described as 'finely tuned', what does that mean? I see it used in reviews but have really can discern the meaning. Thanks

      tunr, tone, line, and voice are all the same from a music theory/wikipedia perspective. I would take finely tuned as a well-crafted voice, something very pleasant to the ear, or at least soundly en ... more

    Never thought of myself as a poet, though I do write songs. I love taking poem lyrics and pairing them up with the perfect melodies. Out of my passion for doing this, I've started 'Poem Into Song'. I'd be honored if you'd check out my site: www.songwritercentral.com/poemintosong

    Many thanks!
