    Keith is right and I agree with him. Writing poetry is also delving into the depths of our heart. I cannot write poetry without feelings and conviction. These two must be there as propellers to write a poem or to revise and revise a poem. Otherwise if emotions and conviction are really there, one could be lucky that such a piece of poetry does not need to be revised at all. At times, a poet can look at it as perfect creation.

    Great to know that there is a forum like this at Poemhunter.com. I have not really managed to find out what other offers are available here. To the question on improving poetry, I think it is a matter of feeling the moment, to formulate words and images out of something that has caught your attention. It is delving into it and spending time to give birth to its form and then seeing to it that the thought serves as clasp of the necklace that unites the lines.

    Good command on language and wide reading with lot of life experiences are the essential tools of a good poet that I think. Not only that the experience of human life its black and white situations, sufferings, and also the affluence makes one to understand the life. The nature and its beauty the different facts of nature, is also a point to be reckoned with for getting a inner vision to the poem one who writes the subject. The poems are wonderful creations of the human mind what to say in a poem in such a particular style which the reader tries to understand better based on his own meanings. A good poem that I think is a message to the human being and to the ultimate goodness of society where society is taken as a general subject beyond continental barriers and man made walls of divisions. A real interested reader is beyond the divisions of human made walls but his liking and commitment is to the poet and only the poet who leads him to a world of happiness and innermost feelings and tries to something to himself from the poem.Only universe is the limit of a poet to say his message in such beautiful language, rythm and likes as such by the readers. Here we get a very wide forum of poets with different talents and word power through such beautiful poems which we must take as a chance to understand.

    First of all i think its something that needs to come deep down your heart
    not something you sit down and just write like school home /work.

    This is one of my first stabs at an English sonnet, although I did cheat, with the constructs of rhythm, I still have a lot of work


    Blind is the ocean to the sound of its motion
    As it roars with momentum of immeasurable melody
    Cascading in whitecaps of sinuous elocution
    Against the gold Shorelines with foam balm fidelity
    And Astounded, I smile as my toes snicker gusto
    Flowing in the convent bonds of primeval sapphire
    That Drips like champagne into my pours and soaked muscles
    Lashing emulsified brine into Salt licking pyres
    Enraptured and serene, my vision twists of blue
    Grazing the vanishing points that single heaven and earth
    Are just the marginal lines of material sinew
    That draws reciprocity from once spiritual hearth
    And the sky sits clear, deaf to these great sights
    As I stand gazing awestruck to this arena of Delight

    An old man's saga

    PRESENT

    At dusk
    when twilight falls
    and dyes the sky
    with stygian view, and turns
    the blue and white into
    an Orange hue;
    till the darkness declares,
    the night's feasts and fears.
    (surely a teasing play of Nature,
    where all feelings and fears of man
    are figured like in the theatre)

    PAST

    'This often travels me back- in time
    we used to sit or thrashing around
    (in such state of frenzy)
    sweetly we hymned
    some loving rhymes.
    (like a tickling breeze thats flirting with your reddened cheeks)
    But don't know how and when,
    we got our hearts cracked and coiled;
    and had masked our smiles.
    (who cut that string and
    let our passion spoiled)

    END

    Now that
    all those revelries had gone
    that proved both in the wrong,
    (in these yawning hours,
    sitting by the fire alone
    and staring at the dying embers)
    i find myself, only talk to myself,
    and i wish
    to resurrect the past
    and wed again (my heart insane)
    to those 'listless' sights and strains'...
    (what else an old man can do
    on such cold, misty eve.)

    Improving your poetry writing skills is a skill that needs constant practicing. Reading a lot of poetry will help you gain content on themes and extracts you might want to use in your work.

    Remember, we all have something to say. We are all poets!

    Hi guys!
    I might be young but i love to write poems.
    PLEASE FRIEND REQUEST ME
    I have many poems to share with all of you
    1. Think of rhyming words that go with your theme
    2. Start in pencil, that way you can rub out any mistakes.
    3. Just go with the flow / whatever your brain tells you
    4. FINISH!
