    I suggest studying William Shakespeare and his great works especially his sonnets, so we all can benefit.

    Poetry is a diplomatic trap to catch human by a superhuman state of thinking. Supra-conscious strategy of hacking human mind.

    We are reading and reading a poem while the sky is watching us from there. But we care not anybody. We know there is none before us when poem is here. Let us read poem again and see that there is no sky. The sky disappeared fearing the poem. The poem is Supreme and we are composing and reading the poem.

    Let us start at every moment everything afresh without any preoccupation. Be careful to the words preconceived and also prejudiced.Be free from all and come to start anew. This is the first stage of poetry. Forget all.

      Thank you kindly for the recommendation. I will check out her poems later. It is good to see that there are some poets who are prepared to recommend others.

      You may be right LP... I've got no proof either way. I only claimed belief, not knowledge - just to be accurate..

      PH was launched, I believe, in 2003. Schnackenberg was already a major voice at that time. Its unlikely she would've joined PH. Why would she?Those three poems of hers were placed there by others, mor ... more
