    Hi R&R Workshoppers Most of what I write does not follow strict

    traditional formats, I tend to focus on imagery, word creation,

    and internal Rhythm and movement within the text.

    However one of my poems - 'It's Better With the Good Eye ' - is a

    Villanelle, and I was very happy with how it worked, although I found writing

    strict rules was difficult. I don't like strict forms, sonnets etc. easy, and

    feel that image and wonder suffer at the hand of form.

    All the more respect therefore to Shakespeare and the others who succeeded.

    All comments welcome.

    Thank You All.

      I disagree with your statement that 'image and wonder suffer at the hand of form' A true poet is he who DOES NOT LET image and wonder suffer at the hand of form. Content sans Form is as bad as Form s ... more

    Someone said poems don't need rhymes, yes that right? That means only Lyrics and sonnet etc..need rhymes, because they are for singing, nevertheless the poems for simple reading, memo in the souls.  C h o w i n g   i n   y o u r   h e a r t 。

    Almost all of my poetry-life I have written traditional verse following the guidlines of the traditionalists originators.I put alot of work in my poetry as these lines do not pour out of me in refined finished form.I write about anything that catches my Muse's fancy and I hope to inspire you when you read my poems.The two great things that mark a real poet is to inspire some else to write creatively and to make someone say 'I wish I had written that poem'.Best wishes to all who like to write in the lyrical style.

    What are the importance and the points on the sentences?

    Would you tell me any hints on the Rhythm? What that mean on them? Are there in each sentence needs jumping sound like a horse? I need the opinion and hints about this topic.

    Hi could you comment on my poems 'Hell' and 'Do you believe? ' please, because I'd like to know whether it's worth entering them in a competion.
    Comments on my other poems would obviously also be very nice. Thanks!

    Hello everyone. My name is Greenwolfe 1962. This is the first time that
    I have ever come to this workshop for obvious reasons. I am a very busy person these days and I don't have time to help everyone who asks me to help
    them one on one. Therefore, I decided to put up this posting for those of
    you who are here. I thought that if I just came here and answered a few
    questions from time to time, that I could help more people more efficiently.
    So, my question is this for everyone here who would like to comment.
    I would like you to tell me whether you think I should come here from time to
    time to answer your questions. If you don't think I should or that I have no business here then say so.I'm not going to waste my time in a place I should not be. I leave this entirely up to those of you who respond to this posting. I will return in about two weeks to read your comments and come
    to a decision. If it is yes, then I will visit this forum once a week to
    answer the questions you posted. Thank you for your attention.

      Thank you Greenwolfe but I try to answer all of my questions myself. Most of my questions are good and my answers match them. H

    at times i wonder, whether poetry is spontaneous expression of feelings or we should follow the classical structural forms for writing more effectively. free verse is more in vogue these days.i have expressed tis in my poem Poems and POETRY.
