    Everyone can write any poetry, but not everyone can recite poetry in its pretty meaning. We all like poetry and some write poem, but does not mean that someone is a poet at all. Thanks.

    I know a lot of people who write poetry, but they don't publish it for some reasons. These people are great in writing poems, but they prefer to be in the shadow. Encouraging people anywhere and everywhere to write and to publish poetry will these people to come forward.

      That would not work. You can't force someone t publish their work. There are many who have their own reasons for not publishing. Let them do it when they are ready, not before.

    There are a lot great poets and a lot of great poetess in our great website, so I would like to write about great poetesses or great poetess. For example, I can talk about Valsa George's poetry or Neela Nath's poems in a way to show their great styles anytime. We can highlight on certain aspects or anything else.

    Strong emotions and circumstances when it met by a talented poetic heart there is a subject to say in the poem. As well as poetry is just like a mirror showing the picture before it which feels beautiful for good recitation and understanding.

    I suggest studying or showing any poet or any poetess' poems. I like to have pretty comparisons between poets or poetesses. I like the guys to focus on certain poets or poems, so what do you think?

      No. You should not focus on the works of one person. I am currently reading the works of over 10 different poets and would have to say that my method in this case works for me.

    Try to avoid profanity in your poems. I know that it is so very easy to slip up or get caught in the moment and swear, but please bear in mind that some members are under 18 and don't need or want to hear or read you spout it.

    Writing poetry is not limited to the gifted people or to the genius people simply because there are who feel that they want express themselves in their own ways... Writing poetry might need certain ways to organize a regular poem in a certain style. Thanks.

    Writing poetry is only the work done by words, most hardest work ever done on earth. Sometimes simply a word to finish the canvas could make one standing inside the fire of hell, ever been imagined as painful fire to unbearable burning sensation, through human skull. So, beware of the game to play new poem-maker.
