It's funny! But I've been searching through the forums on this site, everywhere I look all I find is people posting their own poems. Is not the purpose of these forums to discuss ways and techniques in writing poems?Is not the purpose to create ideas on how to write?If so, then where are the discussions, where are the techniques and ideas. I have not found any advice, techniques or ideas on writing. Maybe it’s just me.

Dear readers, below is a poem meant to lament the disaster involved in a war or similar experience. The victims of war are not its only casualities, 'they are well out of it'... But we that remain behind to mourn these losses are the main casualities... We should avoid any cause for a violent process and embrace dialogue wherever we find ourselves...
Its weird only when its a cry;
Its mild and a norm to be without a fright;
cataclysmic experiences bury forever plight;
Unexpected predicaments to contend with all the remain might;
Sojourn in the land of fear;
Cheap commodities of fright for sale;
what a journey to embark on by this new itinerant!
Lucid variations of harmonious feeling of fear;
pale pedestrians sail in their pairs...
A new life of charade for the fear of fear;
recurring encasulation of the reason for the tear;
the fear to play;
even to pray;
All squadron withdraw, retreat and hide with personalities of lesser fear;
still, no not one, that is not borne with this same fear.

I think my poetry is fine
the problem is making money from it
this is a problem because i don't want to do anything else
i just got rejected from creative writing school
i know i am good enough to get in
i don't know why they didn't take me
Poetry is easy
so is blasphemy
human beings are greedy
except they choose not to be
writing this piece is unnecessary
i could plant my vegetables
and rare my life-stock
but i choose this,
i choose you

I am very much interested in reading, enjoying, singing good poems which inspires and gives lot of good feeling in the minds. I think that a good poetry must have some thing to say to the reader which pertains to the human emotions and human friendliness and universal compassion. I am very much interested to read the poems of Keats, Wordsworth, and also the famous works of eminent English poets as well as my regional language. Poetry I think is the best of medium to change the world to communicate love compassion, friendships, as well as non violence.

On Poetics / On The Art Of Poetry
The best poetry a poet can create must resemble effluent streams, containing as its quintessential necessity above all else- music.
Music is the key to exalted verse, in its meter, in the sonic quality of the words employed, and in its conveyance of meaning, especially through the use of imagery. This last aspect gives birth to the mystical dimension of visual music. Only in poetry is this transcendental perception of visual music given full reign. The objective of the poet is to transfer the ineffable into a descriptive philology, through the use of rhyming, mellifluous verse. Prose cannot achieve these objectives, because prose, by its constrictive nature, lacks the essential prerequisites for the more musical expressions of what is most aesthetically bright, true, beautiful and eternal..Yet rhyming verse can achieve the miraculous. Truth is beautiful in itself, and poetic verse which, through its music, can marry reality with romance, is above all else a conveyor of the sublime. ~ John Lars Zwerenz? / Author: John Lars Zwerenz / Posted March 13,2014
