    This is a terribly disorganized forum. There is no moderator or director, so everybody just posts anything everywhere. This section is for comments about writing poetry. Techniques. Tips. Technical things. Advice. Yet I see complete texts of poems here and appeals to comment on poetry when there is a clearly marked section for critiques. I see rhymed poetry posted in the free form workshop. Without a monitor to straighten this out, , it's like the forum overgrown with weeds. It makes everyone look like simpletons or rank amateurs, and it takes the fun out of it for people who are interested in a mature poetic discussion. The only solution to this is please THIMK what you are posting and where you are posting it. For all of us. Thank you.

    Waiting.18157

    In the course of
    Waiting
    My heart creep’s
    My psyche
    Marvels
    Even when I hate
    Waiting
    I wait.

    When will the
    Answer
    Come?
    What will the
    Answer
    Be?
    I wait
    On the HEAvenz
    Patiently.

    While waiting,
    The temptations
    Alarming,
    Knocking on ma door
    Like flowing
    Tributary,
    I escaped some,
    Some trapped me.

    At last,
    Thanks to the
    HEAvenz,
    I free me,
    Then the answer
    Came
    At an hour I do not
    Expect.

    Spring Blooms

    The bitter fearless frost departs
    The snow has being dismissed
    A vibrant spring has given birth
    The harsh winter wont be missed

    A dormant land begins to stir
    The frost admits defeat
    Nature starts to come alive
    Submerge its winters sleep

    Vibrant colours start to scatter
    As spring is now in bloom
    Luscious flowers come to life
    A scent of sweet perfume

    Lambs leap around with joy
    Birds all sing together
    Buds flourish out in bloom
    I season all do treasure

    Golden rays of sunshine
    Rise in skies of blue
    Dry away the winters tears
    And clears the dancing dew

    Springs bought all back to life
    But the cycle passes through
    The sun beats down like thunder
    As summers now in view

    The Flag With The Wind

    This is just the beginning of without any end
    Just one step ahead when we got a sphere
    Just one tick of the clock as our hands on tie
    And though our words just simple may we get on high
    One must won't let go even though you feel a fire
    Cause every curse is the strength to get up and fly
    And if a whole number will be a fraction
    It could be a mixed number beyond many reasons

    When we reach the top put the flag with the wind
    There will be no blueprint be lost in sight
    This isn't what they call an infatuation
    Cause our love is a cancer we're drinking with one glass
    Let the door be revealed to open up our mind
    Let the warm to every cold with the weight of the heart

    Planets won't collide if they talk in one language
    The sun is at the center teaching us to keep tight
    And even though how far we are, we still can see its light
    If the star's age will stretch far its color will change
    But only death can stop him from buoying up in the sky

    So if you feel you get burst, feel the music of the past
    Bleed your veins to find out what's in your blood
    If you forgot the past dig deeper to your heart
    And let your instinct tells you who you are

    I know that this makes me look like a stickler but this is a poetry site so please please please, anyone submitting a new poem, at least take the effort to put it through a spell check first. There are WAY too many poems I keep on coming across that have terrible spelling, grammar and syntax errors. I'm a terrible speller so I know how easy it is to make these mistakes but most of them can be easily rectified by simply typing the poem up on word or any similar word processing software first. Seriously guys. If you want to use language expressed through words to communicate you're thoughts to a wider public audience, then have the decency to treat that audience with some respect, not to mention the language your using in the first place.

      I totally agree with you. If you're going to write poetry, write it properly. With proper language. It might be a typo, but then that's why you are supposed to check it over. It's really annoying r ... more
