What is Poetry.

There are two basic types of poetry.
  1. Traditional - follows standard rules of grammar and syntax with a regular rhythm and rhyme scheme.
  2. Modern - avoids rhyme and standard grammatical organization and seeks new ways of expression.

Read a poem several times. That way you can "hear" the piece and feel its emotion.

The poetry here on WANDERER'S NOOK is mainly the "modern" form of poetry.

I consider myself a modern writer of poetry.

I refuse to really call myself a "Poet" because I haven't matured enough in writing in order to have the honor to sit at a desk next to Billy Collins, Margaret Atwood, Rita Dove, etc. So, I tap, tap, tap on, at this key board until the Poet in me breaths life.
