I like peas.Beauty, so they say, is in the eye of the beholder, do you think this is true for poetry as well?
This question is akin to one like ';What is the meaning of life?'; For me, personally, if the poem doesn't engage my senses, I feel that I'm reading prose in verse form.
I write in all styles - whatever strikes my fancy at the moment. I just know when a written piece is not poetry. It reads like a book, with no rhyme or reason behind it.
Anapest is the best of meter and of rhyme.
Trochee, spondee, iamb havin' a great time.
Double dactyl ain't so practical
For each and ev'ry stanza.
Just pen the verse, it could be worse,
If no one unnerstands ya.
Metonymy, synechdoche, simile, litotes,
It's a poem if it hits hoem, each way has its devoties.
Agree with all three (above and beyond that is).
after a good vindaloo i hear poetry all the time. but then again i'm a bit of a reductionist,
I am very free, for I have never been ';schooled'; on what poetry is. I have come to my own conclusion, which is that poetry is all about feeling and expression. As far as how long, I think it all depends on the person.
To me, it is when I do not feel a beat. Until then I am very open.
I think it is true of almost everything.
