    Poetry is perhaps the greatest discovery of humans. The process of writing poetry is a mystery to me, a non-poet. By the way, poetry is often considered the opposite of science. But I have come across a couple of poems which deal with actual, hard science. I will try to recover them. In the meantime, can anyone share a poetry based on science?

    Hi Everyone,

    I'm pretty new to sharing my poetry, but have opened up a few for your review and comment this past week. I very much value your feedback, suggestions and recommendations, so if you have a few minutes I have a few poems up now. I welcome all feedback, good, bad or indifferent....

    Kind Regards,

    Debra Kay Robinson

    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 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
