Excellent advice, Shonte’, thank you.
I guess because the poems I write tend to be a ‘release’ for the chapters I am writing; I get caught up in its emotion, and try to condense the thoughts. There is a true art to “word economy” (thank you, TexasPoet) and I have not mastered it yet, for sure.
Every single chapter has inspired poetry. Some I have posted, some, I never will.
Thank you for your thoughts, the virtual hug :), and your kind understanding.
