    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  smile (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.

    I know a poet who has a six line poem for a hub.  It seems to have worked.

    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.  I usually give a brief description about what each poem is about. You could do this, or alternatively write a little about yourself as the Author. Best wishes.

    If your hub is tagged poem or poetry it should remove the length warning.  I believe it still needs to have at least 50 words in order to be published (or fewer words and a photo).  A very short poem, a single haiku for instance, might still be a problem I guess ...
