    I suggest studying or showing any poet or any poetess' poems. I like to have pretty comparisons between poets or poetesses. I like the guys to focus on certain poets or poems, so what do you think?

      No. You should not focus on the works of one person. I am currently reading the works of over 10 different poets and would have to say that my method in this case works for me.

    Try to avoid profanity in your poems. I know that it is so very easy to slip up or get caught in the moment and swear, but please bear in mind that some members are under 18 and don't need or want to hear or read you spout it.

    Writing poetry is not limited to the gifted people or to the genius people simply because there are who feel that they want express themselves in their own ways... Writing poetry might need certain ways to organize a regular poem in a certain style. Thanks.

    Writing poetry is only the work done by words, most hardest work ever done on earth. Sometimes simply a word to finish the canvas could make one standing inside the fire of hell, ever been imagined as painful fire to unbearable burning sensation, through human skull. So, beware of the game to play new poem-maker.

    Writing poetry is easy and available to all amateur poets simply because you need to write anything just as a good beginning to another coming periods. Everyone feels that there is a poet inside him or her, then with time that would-be poet will add his or her spices to those poems written later on.

      It's true that poetry IS open to all regardless of religion, gender and race. Unfortunately, not all can write. This can be for a variety of reasons. There is no point forcing a mind that can't wr ... more

    There is no point in stealing other people's works, you're just wasting time and you will lose the respect of your peers. Be original and gain respect from everyone.

    The more we read others' poetry, the more we get enriched with others' pretty styles.

      Poetry is MEANT to be read and shared. It is said that in order to know someone, you must first read their poetry. Styles are not important in a way, more the message.

    As new comers or late comers the poets have to achieve certain standards in their poems which they have to try their best. Also I think that every thing observed by the human being that is useful for thoughts and corrections in behaviour of humans can be used as a theme in the poems which have importance to society and public. But it must be borne in mind that we are not entitled to make unfair judgements and conclusions on the observation we have made.

    Individual capabilities are not always equal. And poetic talents and taste is different sometimes. The real creation of a poem and theme is subject to the experience and observations oneself makes and then comes the word power. Unless the poet had acquired the correct word power the poem is sometimes mistaken in that angle. Voracious reading habit is also good to get the ideas from such noble minded world famous poets which is helpful for the mind in future.Ideas and opinions including clarity of mind is essential to a thoughtful mind always as a positive quality to be reckoned with.
