what makes good poetry? [discussion filled with lurve] 170 Original Poetry/Lyrics 9/3/14 5:49am
passy indoors
I think it would be cool if we discussed our favorite poets and/or poems. My personal favorites are {surprise, surprise} T.S. Eliot and E.E. Cummings. I really like the line, "La lune ne garde aucune rancune" from "Rhapsody on a Windy Night" by Eliot. I find he has a way with words that makes me want to read the entire piece without me even realizing I've read twelve stanzas already. As for Cu ...

Very quickly... I can see you slowly improving, and that's great! All of the action verbs really help with the imagery. I like how the last line of one stanza rhymes with the first line of the next. I also appreciate how the rhyming tends to lean more towards half rhyme. This makes it much less forced-sounding. Yes, I personally do have a few problems with this poem. There are instances that are ...

Hooray! I got tons and tons of origami paper, and I just ordered more. :lol: Some will be coming on Monday, while others will be coming in a month or so. The latter is from France, and the papers are handmade. I've ordered from them before, and the results were superb.

Here's why I disagree with you there: Without getting into semiotics and whatnot, the sound of a word, aesthetically, has no bearing on its meaning at all. A word that sounds nice may have a horrible meaning, for instance. But more to the point, what do we even mean when we say a word sounds "nice" at all? It's ultimately a matter of personal preference. Alliteration, consonance, assonance ...

If you want people to read your poems here, then please post them all in this thread. This forum is meant for people to post poetry, not link to other sites {or even to other sections of Gaia}. Thank you, and good luck with your writing! :}

I see that you're creating a lot of threads. While it's great that you want to share so many poems, this forum is very slow-moving. Therefore, if you would like to share multiple poems at once, it's completely fine {in fact, it's encouraged} to post them all in one thread. Good luck in your writing! :}

I’m having trouble distinguishing between “imagery” and “what is done with imagery.” Maybe you can help me out with what you mean. Seems to me, though, that you can’t just have an image, all by itself. It needs context, needs to be at work in a poem before you can even begin to form judgments about its “quality,” if that’s what we’re talking about. I agree that reading poetry ...

Ehh, I'm fine either way. Originally, I had wanted to emulate Felix's self-given prompt of writing outside my comfort zone/usual style. Unfortunately, I couldn't come up with a good topic. I still wanted to write something, so I just splurted this out. :lol:

Yes, you're getting the idea. Check out the A Guide to the Art of Poetry sticky by Have Your Pi or the Guide to Poetry and Critique sticky by Poetess Laureate. They'll help you even further. Great job!

I tried to write a poem, but this is as far as I got. I might try to expand it further, but who knows if that'll actually happen. x} Title We hiked for years yesterday, yearning to clench the sky in our hands and pretend we held a fistful of sapphires.

Real quick: Remarks like the one in bold are why I assume you had such a hostile attitude. I tell you that you did a good job, yet your response is borderline passive aggressive -- even rude. The eye roll especially makes it come off that way. I'm not saying you are doing this purposefully, though. :} Now, if I end up not liking any of your poems, then who cares? Keep writing. I'm just one ...

That's great! I'll do my best to read through the poems by next week or so. A collective is useful to have if only for the reason that all your poems will be in one place. This way you won't have to go searching for them in the future if you want to read any. ;)
