      How can you use an avatar like that...

      Mine is poeisis..why does such a word that was once a dreamers reality suddenly become a mere suffix as in erythropoiesis....

      Poiesis is to poetics what Plato is to science....

      figure that!!!

    It is Japanese verse in just three lines. Both Tantrum & I write it.  But the objective is to paint a picture in 17 syllables. So it depends on word strength and mix.

    When once I think upon it
    I'm sure I like the sonnet
    I honor all the rest
    But rhyming is the best
    Since I've so often done it

    LEWJ--you took what I was going to say! The limerick. I majored in English, read lots of sonnets, but the limerick is the most fun.

      Yeah, patful, I think rhyming's a lotta fun for light verse and can be a very powerful ally for serious poetry.     American and English literature are full of precious examples smile

    I just did my first one.  I don't know what it is, free verse or lymric, but it was heartfelt from true life experiance.

    Sometimes I'm partial to the one that goes, 'Thirty days hath September'...it really tells you something.

    I have no idea I have only ever written poetry since I came to hubpages five weeks ago and I am only calling it poetry because some of the wonderful hubbers that have been kind enough to leave some comments have said that it is poetry. I have always said that I can't write poetry but five weeks ago I thought that I would just give it a try. I don't have any experience with poetry and before hubpages most of the poetry that I read was just too deep for me to understand. In the past I have read what people said about some of the poems that I have read and I just couldn’t see or understand how they saw all the things that they had seen in the poem.  When I have to choose a category not really knowing what it is I write what category I choose is really pot luck.

    The first poem I wrote I just copied the category of a friend’s poetry hub and that was so not right that I went back and chose something else which in all likelihood is still not right. All that being said I have been absolutely bowled over by the fact that I have been able to write something that has at least pleased me, and I have found that I can write in this way.

    What I have written may not be good or interesting to anyone else but at least it has given me a real sense of achievement. I seem to write the same kind of way each time at least I think I do so if anyone can let me know what kind I write I would be grateful to know, that is if it has a name at all.lol

    I don’t mind criticism if it is constructive but please be gentle as I am only just taking my first tentative steps and can be easily crushed.
