are you surprised what poems gain popularity and which one just sit unviewed?
Are you talking about our own poems or other people's??
What suprised me is that I write a poem which I hate and it gets over 70 views a day...I write one which I really like and I get 2.
Examples of this Drew are "The Lamentations of the Afro Kid" which has proved very popular (Which I hate):
And "The Englishman" which I love but which is unpopular:
People like simplicity....
I wrote a poem called November 23 I think is my most honest thing I've written which get hardly gets any views. I write a one about my imagination ruling the world and it takes off.
The poet is dead now my friend. As long as we conform to simplicity we may aswell not write poetry.
We should rebel or go on strike or something.
That is it, I'm actually going on strike!
The meaning of poetry is getting whittled away into nothingness!
Until the true meaning comes back and people start reading non simplistic stuff aswell then I am going on strike!
haha it kinda inspires me to switch my style up
learn different types of poems
like limerick, I just recently learned of that style
look at the radio simple music
the artist may make quality music but the hits are usually simple
Always a difficult one with poetry to include the appropriate tags, etc. I presume the ones that succeed are the ones which are well linked to elsewhere and the ones where the author has a great number of fans.
Let me know if you have an answer to this question...I haven't figured it out myself.
New concept for me, poetry on Hubs. Of late I have been viewing quite a few. In fact I may post some myself.
Still, I can see why many would go unviewed since for many poetry is an acquired taste.
Hell. I just write, cause I got to get it out. If someone enjoys it then so much better, but if they don't oh well. I go back and read my own and enjoy it. LOL
My good friend Cabin Girl enjoys writing Poems but has been banned from the Forums, she tells me unless Hubs lifts this ban she will delete not only her poems but her account on Sunday !
I can only guess because of that incident on Saturday night which I myself was involved with so Hubpages have decided to basically kill off Cabin Girl which I dont really care about because if she isnt allowed access to the Forum then come Sunday night I will also stay off the forums.
BC, why is she banned, for doing poetry or promoting poetry. You know us women, we have to have the full story, come on!
For the topic, I love poetry and just getting into it...there should be more men and women promoting poetry.
Because of that topic were myself and Fortunerep let loose, so instead of banning me from the Forums they thought lets kill his double act by banning Cabin Girl from the Forums. Shes not banned, she can still write and comment but I am a person of principle. At the end of the day I am Cabin Girl so basically ban her, then ban me !!
Ohhhh..wow, you have an alter ego too (I like that) However, you are right about standing behind principle for Cabin Girl (you) etc... I am sorry for you and Forturerep too, that just s@$ks! I am feelin' you all!
I am waiting to Sunday and if her ban stands I will stay off the forums as well, let it just become boring because when all is said and done i have seen worse posted in here !
I am taking down Cabin Girls poems now, I hate censorship !
I'm surprised when any poem is popular. Unless it's been set to music and is called a "song".
I pretty much get decent figures (views) on my poems - I guess that's what hubber-friends are for! LOL

This to all Team Management and to all other Hubbers/PoetsI keep getting told how well I am doing with my poetry. Even getting told that they are good, and times they ae excellent, but I have had hardly any comments. What am I doing wrong. Why am I being told this if it isn't true. I thought I was...

One of my friends who is a poet had created a Hub Pages account in hopes to share her poetry with others. She published a number of poetry hubs that included her poetry and appropriate images but they became unpublished with warning messages. I don't remember what they were exactly but I do...

Should those who regard these forums as a place to preach, evangelize and view as a mission field be banned for doing so, especially when they also state adamantly they do not care whether or not anyone dislikes it?

... administer the forums?I asked a similar question in a poll in a recent Hub and though I had many views I didn't get many votes. Now I wonder are people afraid of the consequences if they post their votes or their views?
