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

      Shakespeare is a good start, but don't forget people like Wordsworth or Shelley. There is much to be gleaned from the long gone poets if you have the patience

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

      I want my poetry to be like a serial killer with a hatchet, hacking the human mind. Some have told me it does. That's a compliment.

      An interesting theory. Not one I can agree with straight up. When I write, I do so because I want to. I never have considered using my poetry as a weapon. If there are people out there who would, ... more

    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.

    We should take our time and compose heart touching poems to the admiration of humanity. Lets not use this forum to publicize our poems only but our ideas as well. Thank you all and have a nice day.

    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

    Hi, great poets. I suggest reading and studying all Shakespeare's sonnets fully, so what do you think?Thanks.

    I really want to get my green crest, even if I have to take some other poets down while I'm on my way up. Sorry, that's the world of competitive poetry. I figure the more down votes I give someone the more chance I'll have to move up.
    Fair warning. Look for a lot of " ones" coming your way. I apologize, but it's the law of the jungle. You go down in prosaic flames, while I rise up in the poetry world. What's bad for you gets me digging on Treasure Island. Acker, you're going down first.

      Thanks Jeff. It's a different world out there for poets these days. One has to be aggressive. Opportunistic, if you will. If someone's better than you, stick a " one" in their back pocket. R ... more

      Mr. Westlake, I'll try my best, however, I can't stand to see the other (inferior) poets getting their higher colors before me. I'm shooting for purple by the end of the day. Wish me luck!
