After a brief acquantance with concept of FREE VERSE, let me re phrase an article that it's an art where words are painted rather than to write.
instead the poet attempts to describe his/her
" language that shows, not tell. "
For example, instead of writing " We had so much fun today." , the poet would write " They wore smiles all the way home." It leaves a stronger impression with the reader. Free verse poetry tries to capture images, convey meaning, or emotions through the use of lyrical phrases that will get the poet's message across without a lot of telling. Free verse poets use figurative language devices such as metaphors, similes, and personification to create these phrase.(a web article)
P.s. many thanks to J.C for his kind words

How do I withdraw my poem from your silly little popularity contest?
(10/2/2013 6:38:00 PM)
To create a thought, worth it's weight in ink, I like to do this......
First I turn off the tv, stereo and ongoing commentary in my mind.
Then I like to wash my word storehouse, or at least a few.
Taking intuitive seeing, I eye for useful idea-words, & collect them. As I wash.....
Often I like to draw scribbles that somehow become scenes and characters.
Then I climb the Eternal mountain, it's just inside my spacious self.
Also it's nice to have had chili beans w/turkey. And sourdough bread.
That's some of what I do....when I'm talking to you.

Respected fellow poets. I would be most happy if you read through my simple poem 'End Of Existence' which is written regarding Female infanticide. The link is given below. Please vote and comment. With good wishes to all.

Oh greedy men! Why are you cutting this tree....
who give you life and that is so free,
on loosing a materialistic friend, you mourn....
then why so inhuman for this tree,
who is your own.
Do not you remember the favours of this dear friend,
Travellers repose on its lap, fatigue came to an end.
Cows sit beneath it and squirrels swing on its boughs,
it gives oxygen, by which you children grows.
Trees are homes where sparrows twitter,
pony offsprings of their, here flitter.
What harm do you have, with this sweet friend,
Oh greedy men! Why are you inviting your death...
Go and get a seedling, plant a tree for your wellbeing.

I have just recently gotten into poetry, due to reading much of it in school. I thoroughly enjoy Robert Browning. I have so many moments in life where I feel the need to channel my emotions, and poetry is one way to do that. Does anyone have any tips of writing poetry? Before, it sounded like a 5-year-old wrote it. I have been getting better, but I need some tips to work with.
Thanks so much!Replies for this message:

Please read and review this poem:
The day is too sanguine
Still I feel so morose
Her eyes speak a lot
Still she keeps a gulf.
Oh! Roaring wind
Squeeze me with thy hands
And brew me anew
Make my mind void and
Let no memories linger any more.
