    It certainly is not! Not sure what even prompted the question.

    No not in my opinion. Just look at some of the wonderful work available here on hubpages and out on the bookshelves.

    Unfortunately, poetry has suffered a minor setback. Just like all forms of literature, interest in poetry has taken a steep fall ever since teenagers turned to movies, video games, and other such electronic sources of entertainment. But poetry is still very alive, and will be for as long as people can read!

    I believe poetry is not dead, but I know most from the younger generation are no interested in it.

    I am striving to keep poetry alive.

    @ awful poet, nice picture.

    I don't think that poetry is dead. It is just not so popular as many years ago. Nowadays we can entertain in many other ways but there always will be a place for a poetry.

    There is a lot of new peoms arround the Internet so you can't say that it is dead.

    Poetry will live on until there's no one left to write it.

    It's far from dead.  I agree with Denise Handlon, hubages hosts some of the most creative minds on the net.  It's what keeps me reading hub after hub.

    Hardly, it is a thinking process in some people. At times it escapes onto printed matter. It is the fabric of dreamers, lovers, and those who step out of the box, thank God.

    Once was poetry dieing?
    got me to thinking and then replying.
    The only ones who would ponder such
    are the ones who're  thinking too much
    No my friend...... poetry isn't dead
    get the idea out of  your head

    If poetry is dead, then we'd no longer have songs!

    Poetry like music, is an expression of the soul.

    Thanks for the provocative question, Awful Poet!

    No, poetry is not dead. It's in everything we do. Poetry in motion... hah! Me and my wrestling terms.

    Never will the poetry die as long as a human being has heart, poetry will stay.
