      What can I say Russ?

      Pittan is looking for information? Don't we have Google for that?

      Poetry is pure essence and it is the most effective way to create an emotional experience, to touch and to intrugue.

      I guess poetry is not for everybody to appreciate; Pittan is a lost cause so please write for the rest of us. Thank you

      Hi Russ, I suggest that you write Haiku (5+7+5) or Tanka (5+7+5+7+7) that might squeeze your mind a bit into a corner and allows your intuition to come out...

      Tanka:

      What an awful day

      silence all around

      undisturbed by me

      space for music from within

      filled from far beyond myself

      BeiYin

      I must say, it's not at all wasted - I mean what about this poem? :D

      Wow, thank you, much appreciated, especially from you guys. Sometimes the simplicity rings true.

      One of my favorite motto's is "don't just sit there, do nothing!" I prefer that to the "didn't want to's"

      @ pittman- Getting a glimpse of life through the eyes of another, to help one understand humanity and thus oneself, not only is both useful and informative, it is also almost priceless. Perhaps if you googled poetry or looked it up on wikipedia, you would have something "useful and informative" to write your own hub on.

      I myself give this two thumbs up!

      Ah, those didn't want to do days. Depressing. Necessary. I love the feeling of the rocks. I would like a wasted day of staring at them.

      Like pebbles on the shore sometimes we just lie there. And sometimes we get washed by the sea and sometimes we are burnt by the sun. All of these things leave feelings. These few words, Russ, are so expressive of those feelings. Thanks for sharing them.

      Information cannot be measured by the quantity of words but by the message the words convey - and sometimes fewer words make for a more powerful message.

      Love and peace

      Tony

      Russ...I know the feeling, and the aftertaste of moments lost...

      If Pittan is looking for information perhaps he should read some of Patty Inglish's Hubs which are full of useful information....Poetry is all about nothing and everything...it stretches your mind..

      Hi Pittan, thanks for your comments. I enjoy trying to express myself within short poems that say much more than their subject or length.

      I think a hub should be informative and useful for the visitor. Writing about nothing isn't staying with the true spirit for creating a Hub
