Me? I'm kinda searching at the mo, trying to discover what makes people read (and be moved) by poetry. So if you wouldn't mind telling me - what makes you read poetry (why certain words move you) then dropp me a line, I'd be really grateful.

Thanks Daryl, I'm using this feedback to help me write better poetry, but I might also write something about poetry - how it moves people or not - depending on the comments I receive. I've already had a few emails with different thoughts about poetry. I'm surprised poetry isn't more popular, it (should) be. A poem on a single sheet of paper (should) be able to convey imagery/meaning/emotion in a lot less words than a novel. So why do so few read poetry nowadays compared to novels? Maybe poetry needs a new voice. Anyway, I'm enjoying what folk are sending me so far. Heart seems to be coming through quite strong.

well regarding your biography, I feel that what makes people read poetry is when they can relate to the poem and when they can actually experience the emotions and feelings that you are trying to invoke they will naturally be moved by it. Or rather, that's how I feel.. all in my honest opinion.
