    What do you enjoy reading and writing most; poetry or prose?

    Do any of you enjoy writing prose but prefer reading poetry...and vise-versa?

    I enjoy writing poetry most.

    I enjoy reading poetry most also.

    I must have an artistic brain or be wired that way, lol. Sometimes brainy articles exhaust my mind, although I do enjoy many stories people write and occassional informative articles.

    I would say poetry. Because you can have an entire story start to finish in a few stanzas. It is so rewarding to be able to tell a story and have it finished in a short time.

    I love reading anything that is well written.

    I like writing both, but since I am in a poetry group, I tend to write more poetry. I enjoy reading and writing poetry very much and go to a number of local readings as well. Good question.

    I think i enjoy both because  what you get from prose, you don't get from poetry and vice versa.

    I enjoy both, but I tend to write poetry (or did) more than I read it.  Robert Frost, John Masefield, and Robert Service are some of my favorites to read.  Can't stand Poe.

    My own poetry seems to come to me almost fully written as an inspiration; I have to grab a pencil and scribble it down in a hurry before it gets away.  I worry about clean-up later.  But I struggle if I try to write poetry on demand...it doesn't come easily in those conditions.
    My mother also wrote poems--hers rhymed, while I write in free verse.  Nonetheless, we'd be on the phone at least a few times a week, reading each other our latest creations, and we also joined a poetry reading circle.  Mom passed away back in 1998, and I think my muse died with her; I've written very, very few pieces since.....

      Thank you, Dzy. Sounds like we both write the same way.

    Reading both, writing poetry, doesn't take so much time and it goes straight from heart...

    I prefer both reading and writing prose. I used to write poetry in high school but that stopped when I went to college and took a poetry course. I sort of lost my feel for poetry and stuck with prose.
