Is This Poetry? - Poem by Ravi Kopra

Poetry, a Rorschach test?
Scatter some words on pages
Squeeze them with forced rhymes and let
Readers make what they want to make of it?
(A wonderful poem or murder of poetry)

And let readers full of flattery come
And praise and praise to get back flattery
When they write their awesome (!)poetry.
They do unto you, what you do unto them.
Is this poetry?

This Is Poetry - Poem by Robert Murray Smith

We are users of language invented by others.
Using language we express meaning in many ways.
Ask not what you write or speak to be.
Let it be in the minds of others to see.
This is poetry.

Robert Murray Smith

    Mirrored thoughts can never be poetry for each mind is unique. Poetry is offered and received uniquely.+++10 (Report)Reply
