I can except that poetry doesn't pay the bills .....or whatever ! But as I write something personal - and am notified that it may be substandard ........I mean huh ?
If poetry isn't good enough for hub pages then please simply eliminate it from the categories, wouldn't that be the proper thing to do ? !
I am the sole one who only understand what is in my poem.
He is the lone one who tries to comprehend my poem.
Poetry is the outlet of powerful emotion
Poetry is the sudden outpouring of passion.
Where does passion exist my friend?
Where does emotion lie my friend?
In human hearts
Not in machines
Machine is mathematics
Machine is material
Machine is machine
Va!!!! Va!!!! Va!!! I love the SOLE and LONE, also the PASSION and EMOTION. Poetry is a disease for poets. It irritates the mind until it is released on a page, real page or online page. Write on.
therefore I am
I live and share my emotions
making the sun shine
or the rain come down
it's my poetry
so I do what I feel is right
the right music
the right photos
along with all the I have
to offer to those
who will read it
it cannot and never will be substandard
not when I have opened up
my heart and soul
Hi Gypsy , Feeling a little lately like it doesn't add up to enough ......:-}
You are right - to heck with those that don't feel it !
Heart and soul That is the essence of poetry. It is not 'sub-standard' when somebody says, THAT IS EXACTLY HOW I FEEL.
"Poetry IS substandard!"
"Humanity IS substandard!"
Thats what THEY have to say!
"Can't you do better than that?"
We hear it every day.
"Shut up! Shut up!!" Its all we ever hear.
But, Shutting Up, Shutting Up
Is what we have to fear!
Write on, ride on, earth riders 'neath the stars.
Write your poems, sing your tunes
as brightly as you are.
...and why not here on HP?
I agree Kathryn , to heck with them ........:-}
Say it loud. I am a poet. There. I feel better.
"A questoion for hubpages , is poetry really substandard ! ? ! ?"
First of all, it's "question" not "questoion",
If that's what you means.
Secondly, before comma, there's no space,
But we have one after it.
Next, "poetry" is a word,
How could it be "substandard"?
Finally, if your English is as bad as mine (a Chinese),
Please do not criticize or comment!
I love nature and its creatures and I love to take photos. As I look at photos I sometimes get inspired to write a poem or haiku. Some of them I have published on HubPages.
What I do to keep those hubs from being substandard is to write more in-depth information about my subjects from my observations and research. So far so good, (cross fingers).
Truthfully, if you only have a certain amount of words in your Hub it registers as substandard. I have about twenty poems in one Hub and use it as a place to hold them. Therefore, I have never gotten a substandard rating for poetry.
When I am needing a connection , I come here , and read such comments and BOOM- there - I feel better already !
