Not at all, I love writing , it works as a release for all of my feelings and emotions.
Oh how does one know,<br />
when one is being slow.<br />
Maybe, I'll ask the doe.<br />
Here I go.
Oy. I say oy-oy -
Why do you beat me with verse?
You are killing me.
So says the squirrel.
While he does a twirl.
You know, this can only end
I have come to the end.
One should just amend.
So thy can say goodbye.
One just might cry.
Well, you are really fast,
Faster than a nut-brained squirrel,
Against such force
I cannot last?
As a form of public entertainment in the English speaking world, yes, probably. That does not mean that it has no value. I'm not all that fond of it, myself, but I can recognize witty, and even cunning, use of the language, plain as day. To even attempt it, whether in severely structured forms like hyku or sonnets or even free verse, is an act of bravery. It's fooking difficult. (Sorry, I think that word actually applies here.) Plus, it is just good for the brain as well as the soul. To work out a feeling or thought in a form that is unique and meaningful is a huge risk. And its' fooking difficult.
As long as people have emotions , i believe there will always be poetry.
It isn't unless you try feeding the goats on that boat sailing in that moat some of your fried green tomatoes. (waves hand in the air) fried green tomatoes rhymes with all of that at once.
nope!!! i love writing its soul soothing :))
It's dying all right.
I am very active in poetry, contests, blog, and with my local writers...you may join us online.
Not dead, but EP probably isn't the best place to find someone to relate to on this.
I think poetry is quaint, charming even, but as a topic of conversation?? No thanks.
