    Poetry is like a puzzle only with limitless pieces of words at hand. Find a correct fit and poem will flow. Bigger the reservoir of words bigger a scoop for a writer. Emotions top but skill and mastery of language does matter and for that reason matters the hard work of learning. (Report) Reply

    I find this poem a mirror to my belief that poetry is the projection of soul. An expression of the soul can never be true and beautiful unless it is free from the bondage of rules. 'Let the words flow, flow from the heart...let them find their place in another heart! ' (Report) Reply

    I am astonished! PH has put this poem! Strange! Did the editors read it carefully before sending! Perhaps. Actually celebrities (poets) are perhaps the different species......Now I come to my point of being astonished:

    IN POETRY EVERYTHING IS PERMITTED. (from poem above)

    Do PH believe it! If not, why do they misguide the new-generation poets in this world-based site. Off the record, I am 100% agree with Parra. And for this reason I support PH's sending. And expect they will edit carefully (as the sensitive learned editor does) the poems by the dark logic of slang using neglecting the necessity of perspective of a total writing..............................................Pranab k c........10++++++(for the poem) (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
