I am struggling with how to write a hub and meet their standards.
I am at a complete stand still on creating a hub. Adding images doesn't always work like with poetry. It is just frustrating me and I am ready to just not use images at all. I tried to write about the Russia investigation and couldn't find an image on any site. I struggled with quoting sources like a news report.
I wouldn't try to publish poetry here. Poetry is a tough sale, and search engines are not going to be friendly to a struggling poet.
For images try using different keywords to search for them, and try using different search engines too.
You don't have to quote sources. Just write. Try different things. The more you write the more you'll probably think of to say, the better the writing becomes, and the more ideas you'll likely come up with.
This stuff ain't easy, but the more you do it the better you'll get at it.
Robert, there is no reason you shouldn't be able to find images to include with poetry. Check out Pixabay for free use photos. I write mostly poetry here, usually with additional text added. Feel free to check out my hubs for ideas on setting out etc.

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?

One has to wonder if some of the great writers and poets of the past had been given access to the internet and other means of communication - would the great works they created have come into existence? Or would they...

I know, we should write for both and I do, but the majority of my traffic comes from social media and lately I've stopped honestly caring about trying to figure out what Google wants. My highest ranking hubs for...
