    To be a poet....and indeed a great poet, it depends on how you recollect your emotions in tranquility, how you organise those emotions and how you cloth them with the appropriate words.

    Poetry needs a lot of experience in addition to gifted people or people who like to show some inclination to reading and writing poetry. Writing needs someone to read more poems and to use his or her experience.

    foggy city

    The city is always foggy

    These evil spirits are foggy city

    then crisis and tragedy to begin!

    city with silent scientific stars

    And the smell of smoke!

    city with a lot of evil eyes

    and Strange behavior clans!

    even miracle can not change air

    Because minds are polluted

    When the minds is changed

    scientific stars will be clear

    And fog will move out of the city!

    When one is writing a poem and it is extremely long readers get somewhat bored with it. An idea is to cut the poem off before it gets too long. If you have more to say on the subject take the last line of the poem, start a new one and finish it off. This will also give you two poems.

    to write poem good, good poems need to read as many as possible. But good poems which would be filtered by the poets own parameter of filtering ability. Actually techniques are the secondary requirement, basic is the sayings. If sayings are digested well within expression would carry its order. Know it much controversial yet controversy at least boosts a form of art by its acceptance. Poetry is old and going to be an archived media of expressing finest thoughts of human being.
