What is your favorite poetry genre?
Do you prefer; narrative, satirical, inspirational...? it is hard to choose, but if I had to pick, I would go with what I most like to read and to write: speculative poetry.
All poetry has is worth reading with the exception of Haiku. Just kidding on the last part, but I admit I'm not a fan of short poetic forms.
I agree. Haiku is easy to read, but unless it is very exceptional, there is just not enough substance to entertain me or edify me.
Thanks so much, Wayne, for choosing my answer as best I am so sorry, Phillydreamer, as there was no other comment section listed under my question area. Hugs, Faith Reaper
For me, any form of poem is interesting if it hooks me, challenges then sends me some place emotionally I've not been before. I get enjoyment from a broad range, from romantic to dark to blank verse to, yes, haiku.
Personal preference is for Nature poetry but I read lots of poems from different genres. Too much sweet confessional stuff tends to put me off unless it's got something magical up its sleeve.
Innovative poetry - the ultra modern stuff - is a bit of a brain churner but the use of language is unusual and cutting edge.
So, it's Nature poetry for me.
Hmm, that is a hard choice to make, as I love all poetry of course, and especially inspirational or dramatic, but if I had to choose just one, it would be narrative, as I am for the most part a non-fiction writer, so I love to write poetry from my own experiences.
narrative would have been my second choice...mmm, maybe ( :
I am a short story-prose writer, and to me the line between narrative poetry and the aforementioned is very fine.
Yes, it is. Your poetry written here on HP is really amazing, Wayne.
I don't really have a preference. Speculative poetry is a favorite, along with narrative. I enjoy poems that highlight the little ironies of life, and haiku too, if it is well done.
As others have stated, I too like all forms! But, if I had to choose one... it would be whatever that kind is that the talented Wayne Barrett writes
I love poetry and especially so if it tells a story, or leaves us with a bit mystery.
I in all honesty do not know the different types of poetry. I did however read about them from a hubber.
I know my poems are just whatever is in my mind and I usually like them to rhyme and for some reason I can not seem to write short poems.
For me it would be narrative or "free form." Although I do like all other types of poetry. But, for me when a poem really tells a story, that's what gets me.
I really don't have a preference i like all genre but the most i have read is narrative and inspirational.
To read? Or to write? I think I prefer to read humorous poetry, or anything particularly moving or thought provoking. To write. . .something more lyrical in nature or that expresses emotions I'm having at the moment and can't really express to random people in any verbally articulate fashion.
I like unconventional free verse poetry that uses words and punctuation symbolically or or uniquely. My favorite poet is e.e.cummings. I like when poets use the visual structure (the layout) to enhance the impact of their words.

April is National Poetry Month. I am going to be publishing a haiku every day. Who's with me?It does not have to be a haiku for you. I am just curious if, as writers, you will take part in a poetry challenge.
