"Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen" -- da Vinci

To write poetry, you must read and, read some more -- Me

What Ever

Back when whiteness was clinched
in rosebud’s fist and pine had yet turned to pity.
Every morning hope shined within sun's face,
each night faith spooned moon’s baldness
Now they've both surrendered and given up their ghosts.

I'm a free verse writer. Below is a definition of free verse, from Bob's byway -- for those who don't know or aren't sure what free verse is...I mean!

A fluid form which conforms to no set rules of traditional versification. The free in free verse refers to the freedom from fixed patterns of meter and rhyme, but writers of free verse employ familiar poetic devices such as assonance, alliteration, imagery, caesura, figures of speech etc., and their rhythmic effects are dependent on the syllabic cadences emerging from the context. The term is often used in its French language form, vers libre.
