2011-12-06 [Nioniel]: Huh?
2011-12-06 [Alexi Ice]: I hope you have a good one too
So have a very merry Christmas
To all of you
IDK, I'm terrible at grammar, but I think that should be 'too'
2011-12-06 [Nioniel]: Yep, you're right.
2011-12-07 [Lord Josmar]: Ok, I misplace them often.
2011-12-07 [Lord Josmar]: ....be specific next time Alexi!
2011-12-07 [Alexi Ice]: I even quoted it. Lol
2011-12-07 [Lord Josmar]: I thought that was an example of how to use the word properly to show my mistake.
2011-12-07 [kians mummy]: I have separated all the poems for you
2011-12-23 [Lord Josmar]: Thanks. It was a pain in the rear to find working rhymes and 100% recognizable references, lol.
2011-12-24 [Ravendust]: lol I bet, I'm not so big on rhyming in my poetry, if it does rhyme its usually by accident unless I REALLY put some effort into that... xD
2011-12-25 [Lord Josmar]: I'm usually at my best when I dont have to think about what comes next (kind of a inspirational flow I guess) andbthose poems usually dont ryhme. But if I am forcing myself to wrote one it usually falls into a rhyming scheme.
2011-12-25 [Ravendust]: I usually let my poems flow too... :)
2011-12-25 [Avaz]: Funny, because I'm on the opposite side of the spectrum. I simply don't get the whole "freeform" poetry thing. I feel like if the lines don't rhyme, it shouldn't be considered a proper poem, it's just "prose with random line breaks". Of course, this is my personal opinion and YMMV. :P
2011-12-25 [Lord Josmar]: Lolz. I used to believe that way, but in all honesty I dont know the difference between a poem and a prose.
2011-12-25 [SilverFire]: That's a very narrow idea of poetry indeed. Very modern English-langua
2011-12-25 [Avaz]: Silvie, I totally realize I came off as snobby. I should mention that a poem's cadence is arguably more important than rhyming. So I do agree with you in that, and no offence taken. :) But really, the freeform stuff that has absolutely no structure is what I can't fathom categorizing as a poem. If a "poet" isn't going to take the time to put the work into arranging words into a structure, then don't call yourself a poet. Use those same words, take out the line breaks and call it a short story instead.
Of course, the inherent problem with ALL art forms, poetry included, is that it is 100% subjective, so you can't expect a person to like everything they read. :(
And if people think this opinion of mine makes me a snob, then I guess it's on them. :/
2011-12-25 [SilverFire]: "But really, the freeform stuff that has absolutely no structure is what I can't fathom categorizing as a poem."
Sometimes when you push boundaries, it doesn't work. But you never know until you actually try and see if it will work or not. I dislike a lot of modern stuff, but I appreciate the work they're doing in exploring how far things can go. And, well, some of them do things like that precisely to make you think about what you consider poetry, what's important about it, etc. Much like Duchamp did in art. Whether you like it or not, it makes you think about the form, and is at least therefore successful on it's own terms. It's not really about whether you ultimately decide that that specific piece is poetry or not, but about making you think about WHY it's (not) poetry/art.
2011-12-25 [Koho Ai]: Good luck everybody and great job on your poems!!!
2011-12-26 [Alexi Ice]: Whoa o.0 what happened here?
