    I agree with this.. but I believe the creative mind is as weak against the forces of arrogance and frailty as anything else... personally I fought against many things.. but the creative just eked itself out of what I thought had died... I think in the end it does win out, regardless of the obstacles... but it is the WAY that it outs that is the rub... your experiences may be the prism through which it comes, but it WILL come, one way or the other...

    Anna Freud once said that the creative minds have always been known to survive any kind of bad training... what do people think on this?

      sonja...I would agree with this theory...and while I do believe that most any training is likely to influence or even oppress creativity, ultimately the creativity manifests itself in some manner...go ... more

    Also, thanks for the tip of Salma Mansoor's poem. You are right, it is a wonderful poem.

    I agree with you poetry hound. There are lots of good poets here and I do enjoy them too. I just mentioned this cram of 'insult' poetry this morning because I feel bad for the poets that are actually posting real poems this morning and their work is being wisked off this homepage so fast people can hardly notice it and all due to fighting between certain 'adults'...it's just hard to sit back and not comment sometimes, although I do try not to comment too much. sincerely, mary

    Yes Mary, you make a good point.
    The only objection I have is that you say ....many good poets......
    I haven't seen any here.
    Even Shepherd is slipping. But we have swine here....

    Why is it so difficult to find people posting actual poetry today? It seems the majority of the 'poems' are simply slams and name-calling instead of being anything worth reading...very similar to things written by school children. With so much talent here, it would be nice to see some real poems posted. I really enjoy so many peoples 'poetry' here it seems a shame to waste so much time writing nasty comments back and forth to eachother. But, I know, it's all been said before and this fight will go to the end...enjoy!

    I have followed this with some interest but must say that none of you, including Shepherd, really do know what you are talking about. Just a thought.
