yogachic – 2008-05-25 2:33 AM Has anyone been in the Writer’s Block Party forum? Yesterday I peeked in there to see what types of post were there and there was one entitled “Is poetry for cowards?” Some people just don’T get the poetry thing….I can understand this as my husband is in the same boat. The responses are quite interesting. Of course, I put in my two cents as well. So it made me think. What is it that makes you write poetry instead of, or in addition to, your other writing? Just curious at to what the responses might be. Linda H.
My poetry, usually the best poems, result from a strong, deep emotion, and seldom is it joy.
