    I like poetry because it's a fun way to express feelings in creative form. It's also nice to read poetry and see how many diffent ways other readers find a message....

    This is a difficult question to answer.  Poetry changes with the authors; and, readers grow.  I personally like the way a story is told within the structure of verse.  Other people reject structure and verse altogether.   Emotions are a common theme, perhaps people are looking for emotional feed back.

    Because poetry make some fun in life it's also a beautiful way to express your words with different expression. I also like most poetry.

    Poetry has many styles a poet may use to tell a story or express an emotion.   Less words may be more poignant.when striving for beauty.

    I did it because I felt like I had lost a lot of emotion in my life for various reasons and I wanted to rediscover it.

    Perhaps because it always have been a way to express our inner selves openly. When you write poetry, or whatever you baptise as poetry, you let a part of you get out of the bag and free itself.

    I like a story or a strong tone in poetry.  I try to put some sort of story across in my poetry and I hope it comes across like that.

    I like poetry that moves me to feel some emotion that I wasn't experiencing before reading the poem.  A good poem (to me) can tell an entire story in a few stanzas.  It will be rich in emotion, texture and give me a feeling of a quiet "wow."

    Poetry carries you through a range of emotions or anything that a poet wants to convey, in few words but with solid impact.
