    Well, it seems we all have our own ways of penning down our poems. what we all seek to achieve at the end of the day is to communicate a message to the world. we want others to see what we see, feel what we fell and smile at what we are happy of. In doing this, we must put clarity first in order not to lead our readers astray. Lets keep writing!

    Writing poetry and its capability is actually a very good blessing one gets through his own reading, learning, and also observing the life events and nature etc. Good and great poetry is for enjoyment as well as social awakening and I think poets have a responsibility to the readers and something as poetry they could not contented with. Best of ideas always will be welcomed and accepted.

    Since Poetry is a work of art the best poem is the one you write for yourself...

    Reading more poems helps even if you are poet or not. You need to know others' styles. Thanks.

    I have discovered the best way to improve my poetry is to connect to my readers by asking questions. Is my poem interesting?Does it have a purpose?Does it produce the right emotion?And most importantly does my poem really communicate to the reader. Another crucial element is to not limit the poem, sometimes it has a mind of its own. To do this I do not make hard and fast rules, second even though I do not make hard and fast rules I strive to not title my poem until it is done (unless during a workshop) , and I always read my poem out loud. It may seem simple, but I got this sinking feeling that many amateur poets like me skip out on this part.

    We need to write about anything and about everything just to show things in a poetic style, then people will enjoy later on.

    Writing poetry is not a joke or a farce,
    what you said in poetry is also not final,
    It is just to ignite the fire, that is there
    as before and you have nothing to
    do more but to declare it is there.

    The main thing when writing poetry is that you enjoy writing it. Whether it is written to send a message, as a cathartic process or exercise or purely to write a beautiful flow of words describing an experience, or of anything that has inspired you, it doesn't matter. People often try to defend their style of poetry by denigrating others. I say it doesn't matter, ignore them, choose your own style, work on it, improve on it until you are happy with the results. Everybody has their own preference when it comes to poetry and you can't please everybody, so stay true to yourself and write what comes naturally to you. It's not some competition of who can write more intellectually than somebody else, it's about passion and getting that over the best way you can. I write purely for the enjoyment of it, should any of my poetry get published then that would be a bonus. So, good luck and just keep working at it.
