I'm new here - some of my poetry is "too short"for a hub. How do I fill it with "relevant" material?
I would suggest youtube music videos and picture/ images.. you can also add space between your lines.. just some ideas.. welcome (though it does depend on how short you're talking)
I have started adding an intro for the poems I post, some background and reference points - it is frustrating that you can't just post 10 lines if you want to though,,,, welcome
some of my poems are pretty short....I just add an image or two that tends to illustrate the poem in some way or another.
There's a minimum of original word content that a Hub must have, or the automatic filters will prevent you from being able to publish the Hub. Images, videos and links will not fulfill the text requirements.
You may have to put several poems onto one Hub to satisfy that requirement. Or use a different publishing platform for your poetry.

G'day, I've got a few short poems here on Hubpages about Love. I just write a paragraph at a start of the Hub, then a picture, then the poem.

Unfortunately, I can't seem to duplicate this experience. But a little while ago I started to write a comment to a Hub and got that warning (in red) before I was done with my comment. Am I hallucinating?

What is the difference between poem and rhyme?
by susan beck 7 years ago
I'm interested in poetic process. I personally believe the real writing comes in the editing stage and that all first drafts, without exception, are abysmal. As a result, I edit and rewrite a piece multiple times over days and sometimes weeks before I deem a poem acceptable for...
