I am starting a thread for people to post their poetry hubs. I think this will make it a little easier for all of us to get some more exposure. So I will go first, here is my first poetry hub: <snipped> . Feel free to check it out and let me know what you think.
the Dust, the Dust
the Dust, the Dust
I remember the men,
their faces blackened with filthy coal
layers of carbon dust on skin,
slowly lining their lungs thick.
I think of them in the twilight,
two miles underground
hewing with axe and pick,
shirtless bodies glistening with sweat like morning dew
I see them coming home,
tired of the black
eyes like pissholes in the snow
unaccustomed to the light
and then their golden voices sing in Male Voice Choirs
in the softest way,
that only they,
the men of the Dust know how
and only they know how,
oh how the Dust will end their days
coughing, spluttering, heaving chest,
gasping for one last struggling final breath
and then the silence of their corroded lungs
followed by the womens' quiet tears
for another tonne of that damned black coal
one more husband, son and father is laid to rest.
In loving memory
is no longer an option
"I love you"
is no longer enough
all I still have
to tell you dear father
I miss you
a lot more than the day before
and without doubt
much less than

warning: poem has allusions to sex
shapeless & transcendent
I am shapeless, I am
transcendent, I am
moving through birdsong
as dawn gently breaks through
the clouds of my mind
I am weightless, I am
resplendent, I am
ecstatic to find
the keys that release
the mental chains that bind
I am boundless, I am
ever-present, I am
free to perceive
all that I am and all that is me
And all that I am
and all that is me
is the freedom to be
shapeless and transcendent,
weightless and free
I am shapeless, I am
transcendent, I am
moving through birdsong, I am
free to be me
Wytchewoode thank you for posting this poem.
I love it; it is one of the best poems I read in Hubs
lovely idea, look forward to reading everyone else's work on here.
There is a beauty in solitude only the solitary know. There is a sadness in being . . .
here are my two poetry hubs.
looking forward to reading more hubville poets.
Here's one I wrote 20 seconds ago It's not been edited or reviewed though...
Faculties of frivolity,
Signs to suit the blind,
Drugs to calm the mind.
Welcome to the land of hunger.
Material is immaterial;
The sounds are shades of silence
And the water has run dry.
Welcome to the town of emptiness.
Persecute the persecutors,
Their screams are those of love.
Clean your mind of cleanliness.
Welcome to your world.
One close to my heart, which I wrote and published yesterday
Precious Angels that never made it.

The others are all on one link (Poems) on my Profile Page if anyone's interested.

The question of whether poetry Hubs should have 400-word minimums came up in this thread a few minutes ago:http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/70203#post1528809I've been puzzling about what to do with poetry Hubs I've found while hopping. I haven't flagged any of them, because poetry is a unique...

Why do poems even though well written have a low hub score?Poems are not really lengthy and most poems carry less than 1250 words. Why don't poems have a different rating than a regular article?

It's not only discouraging , I actually want to pull down all of my hubs out of pure disappointment , but I find it actually boring and deflating to read the average hub page today . In truth a poet is better off to write his or her stuff and then self publish . Short stories...

I'm wondering if creative writing - poetry and personal narratives - is appropriate content for a hub?
