Nice poem, Falease. It has a very strong rhythm, both internal and external rhyme, and an admirable message. Comparing the search for peace to the search for a good marriage or love relationship is cool. Good work. A agree with you that there are a few poems that shun traditional poetic form, but manage to convey a strng meaning-Robinson Jeffers is a good example of this type of poet. I also concur with you that poets who write indecipherable verse that only they (or English professors) can understand are not playing fair. I have a Master's in English and have read hundreds of poems, but I always go back to the straight-forward, finely crafted classics like Frost or Wordsworth. Who's Mr. H?
