Thank you for your comment which I am taking very much to heart.
Please consider my poem 'It's Better With the Good Eye' ...a Villannelle.
Do you not feel that non-formal work can also be poetic, moving and
meaningful, eg. Seamus Heaney

Hi R&R Workshoppers Most of what I write does not follow strict
traditional formats, I tend to focus on imagery, word creation,
and internal Rhythm and movement within the text.
However one of my poems - 'It's Better With the Good Eye ' - is a
Villanelle, and I was very happy with how it worked, although I found writing
strict rules was difficult. I don't like strict forms, sonnets etc. easy, and
feel that image and wonder suffer at the hand of form.
All the more respect therefore to Shakespeare and the others who succeeded.
All comments welcome.
Thank You All.
