I am new on this website, but I do have a question. Can you write poetry on hubpages? Yes or no? If so, can you comment a link to explain expectations for poetry writing? I did look around on forums and the learning center for this topic, but I didn't understand any of them at all. Please and thanks.
You can write poetry, as long as you place it under the correct category of 'creative writing'.
HubPages is focused on producing fact-based articles that attract search-engine traffic, so poetry tends to be left alone in its own little corner. You won't earn much money from writing poetry here.
Edit: I just took a look at your first hub, and it's excellent. It's also very long so you could think about splitting it into two or more hubs. You could focus one hub on the gecko in general, then another on its care and feeding, then another on creating the perfect habitat.
If you can put together hubs like that, I'd leave the poetry for your personal journal
I agree, you can certainly write poetry on HubPages for fun, but don't expect it to earn income!

HubPages is full of great poets. I feel some of them must have noticed how listening to good music inspires the Muse. Something to talk about

I have seen poems on hubpages, and I have seen what someone called poetry, though I would not.What do you think makes a poem a poem?
