    Hey guys, I was hoping for some feedback on the poem I wrote today, it's the first time ever I have written a poem so I really don't know if it's good or not: 3
    Here it is:

    I'm standing in the grass, looking up at the yellow sky. I wish I could lay down and stay here, but the air is starting to get chilly. The sun is slowly disappearing behind the trees, and the more darker it gets, the more i'm feeling alone. Something is missing, but I don't know what. The only thing I can hear are my own thoughts in the night, and soon I can't see at all.

      Thank you for giving us the opportunity to read what you write. Its a bad poem, but its a good piece of writing. If you are going to call something a " poem" then make sure it looks like one ... more

    Feelings are the prime necessary to compose a poem. To compose a poem the form is also the prime one to express the feelings by words. So many prime requirements are essential to expose proper tune just like a hand-bomb to make manually. No other simplest way of its formation. Above all patience and concentration are those adhesive which act as a binder. And the supreme authority undoubtedly heart and brain who play the right balance to be strict on creation.

    Everyone is a poet directly or indirectly simply because we sometimes feel that some people say poetry while they're talking to us. I know that those who write poetry must have certain qualifications... Thanks.

    How to bead the words with the thread of imagination and put the magical and musical effect with truth and reality is the poetry

    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.

    poetry is the observation that a poets observe and put in the form and brings to the public, a kind of information in the interest of humanity and the world
