Your post made me wonder what actually constitutes poetry in this day and age, I came upon this quote in my travels:

Quote:
Poetry used to be an art form requiring talent and hard work. There were various conventions, such as meter or rhyme or diction, by which a poem could be distinguished from prose, but they have all been abandoned.

Nowadays, most poetry is ordinary work-a-day prose arranged in arbitrary "lines" and meaningless pseudostanzas, and all it takes to constitute a poem is the bald declaration that it is a poem.

You know, you could have just asked if I had any more complex poems; you didn't have to wave the red flag at me...

I'm sorry, I thought your 2 word "poem" was a joke post. I was humoring you (and I) with a response.

What makes those two words a poem is the title... I thought I was being clever with that one. ; )

"You're beautiful";
that line was clever,
But then she made an endeavor,
To grip hard his shaft,
He did try to laugh,
But she knew it was now,

Or never.

Actually, your quote there Nicola has more meter and diction than some of the "poems" I've seen on poetry sites these days...

Btw, there is limerick thread somewhere, and I believe there may be a haiku thread as well...

Hrmmm... well, yeah, I've got a few more in the attic. There's one I dare not share publicly, a couple I can't remember all the words to, and a couple that I wrote when I was 14 and are just way too cheesy to show anyone. Here's the last of what I've got intact, and I always suspect it of also being a little too cheesy. Hey, I was 17 when I wrote it, so go easy, eh?

Yeah? Well, "The Ocean Has No Memory" is the most recent, at just a few years old. In your opinion, did I do anything with that potential?

Well, you learned to AABB rhyme(without making it corny)
The flow is nice, no hiccups when one reads it.

Oh, Stormblue...that name rings a bell from the past...a cracked bell, but a bell nonetheless...

Let's try a haiku-type thingy here...

Stormblue came to Lush,
Left in a very bad way,
Pray he not return.

This speaks volumes for me but many modern poets would be very upset.

'Twas brillig and the slithy toves,
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:

This is nonsense but wonderful and very famous poetry.

Poetry is way to express feelings that are too power, or great to do so in an out right manner. Poetry does not have to rhyme. As for diction and meter, everything that is written has these two things. Poetry is about the feelings you feel, one's heart's way of speaking about: nature, love, life, death, and thing that matters to the writer. To not present you're poetry in the same way you think is not true poetry. Merely a flowerily lie that you want the reader to believe.

For example, I have to change the formate of my love poems to post them on this site. When Many times I write my love pomes in the format of a letter. But the site rules say I can't do that so I have to obide by the rules.

Competion Entry The Shortest Poem I Ever Wrote

Desire
I...


Art evolves so the format of poetry evolves. For example the common place focus on the Madonna image has long been replaced by a broad variety of new images, media and style. The best art engages the audience, challenges convention, stimulates thought or perhaps simply entertains. In this sense my submission is obviously brilliant as who among us could resist the temptation to engage with the poet and allow one's thoughts to soar off in myriad directions of wild, creative abandon.....

Or perhaps I'm just a dumbass...Lfunny
