    I was searching for poems on depression but the first 3 on the list were all exactly the same but with different authors. Is plagarism a problem on this site, and if so how can I protect my poems?

      I've never encountered that apart from one guy who " barrowed" entire lyrics from Pink Floyd songs to fit his poems. I would report to the website administrator immediately

    I think great poems of great poets and opportunity of reading and understanding such poems makes a man so positive in terms of humanity. From school days onwards talented children must be given proper opportunities to read and understand great poet's poems and their life stories, and try themselves to make little lines of poems within their imaginations and inspired by the parents and teachers to make the child a responsible individual of tomorrow. Surely such a grown up child will be an asset to the society and will be himself a member of world community who may help to make this world with happiness to live with co operation, humanity, and all good qualities that are the aspiration of the scholars and philanthropists and philosophers as well as responsible statesmen in repute.

    More than writing and posting simple poems on my account I used to read the various poems of the different poets of world which is a great experience to my mind and gives immense pleasure. The human imaginations are such wonderful diversity in various means and I likes to read more the poems and post my own simple comments which I make myself happiness. The life experiences, nature, , feelings and various subjects in the poems are most beautiful and the contribution from world renowned poets poems are so much given in the column which are very much interested.How wonderful their imaginations and approaches to the various subjects of human life? It is not an exaggeration but a fact that this opportunity of posting poems will surely make chances to the new comers to make their own talents in better spirit and results I think.

    Poetry is perhaps the greatest discovery of humans. The process of writing poetry is a mystery to me, a non-poet. By the way, poetry is often considered the opposite of science. But I have come across a couple of poems which deal with actual, hard science. I will try to recover them. In the meantime, can anyone share a poetry based on science?

    Kind Regards,

    Debra Kay Robinson

    Keith is right and I agree with him. Writing poetry is also delving into the depths of our heart. I cannot write poetry without feelings and conviction. These two must be there as propellers to write a poem or to revise and revise a poem. Otherwise if emotions and conviction are really there, one could be lucky that such a piece of poetry does not need to be revised at all. At times, a poet can look at it as perfect creation.

    Great to know that there is a forum like this at Poemhunter.com. I have not really managed to find out what other offers are available here. To the question on improving poetry, I think it is a matter of feeling the moment, to formulate words and images out of something that has caught your attention. It is delving into it and spending time to give birth to its form and then seeing to it that the thought serves as clasp of the necklace that unites the lines.

    Good command on language and wide reading with lot of life experiences are the essential tools of a good poet that I think. Not only that the experience of human life its black and white situations, sufferings, and also the affluence makes one to understand the life. The nature and its beauty the different facts of nature, is also a point to be reckoned with for getting a inner vision to the poem one who writes the subject. The poems are wonderful creations of the human mind what to say in a poem in such a particular style which the reader tries to understand better based on his own meanings. A good poem that I think is a message to the human being and to the ultimate goodness of society where society is taken as a general subject beyond continental barriers and man made walls of divisions. A real interested reader is beyond the divisions of human made walls but his liking and commitment is to the poet and only the poet who leads him to a world of happiness and innermost feelings and tries to something to himself from the poem.Only universe is the limit of a poet to say his message in such beautiful language, rythm and likes as such by the readers. Here we get a very wide forum of poets with different talents and word power through such beautiful poems which we must take as a chance to understand.
