Late last evening I published a poem on this blog. However, this morning I determined it was not quite ready for publication. So I have backed it off for now.
I have found writing poetry from time to time to be a relaxing yet stimulating device. I am not very good at it and most of my poems seem as if they are constrained. But since I don't care if anything ever comes of them, I don't really care if the poetry experts like what I write or not.
Let's all admit it. Some of the poems by some of the "great" poets STINK! They make no sense or they do not rhyme, or there is no meter. I would rather write a badly worded poem that someone can understand than a well written poem which no one can understand.
I'm a poet and my poems stink.
But at least you will know what I think!
