I'm new here - some of my poetry is "too short"for a hub. How do I fill it with "relevant" material?

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?
