This is for those of you who write poetry. Don’t you think this should be a word: whe? Sorry. Off-topic.
Anyway, do you ever read one poet’s poetry then start writing poetry in the form/style that they did?September 12, 2019 at 8:48 am #96920
What does “OUY” mean..?
And yes, I find that sometimes I do. Especially in the past couple years. This year I have been working very intentionally on poetry and learning more about it and writing it more and I think have begun to find my voice. Or at least for this season of my life. I find it changes as I change.
You?September 12, 2019 at 11:37 am #96936
*slides in on my knees* I don’t write poetry, but I do occasionally write lyrics. Same thing? Maybe not? I just wanted to say I don’t normally enjoy reading poetry, but I love @Evelyn’s so much.

@ncstokes Oh my goodness, really? *blushes* O.o
I try. XD
But wait… you write song lyrics?? How have I not known this! And yes I think this question applies to songwriting.September 14, 2019 at 9:49 pm #97108
@evelyn I do! I even try setting them to music sometimes. It’s good fun.

Yep, it’s you. Right now, I’m going for the Whitman touch. I recently began the beginnings of a poem on the beginning of Autumn. Because Autumn has just begun. It’s going pretty well. I might put it up here or somewhere sometime for critique. You ever read Whitman? (If so, I would advise only some of his works. Others aren’t so well done).September 15, 2019 at 5:03 pm #97132September 15, 2019 at 6:28 pm #97148
Well, I like Shut Not Your Doors, Autumn Rivulets, and The Ship Starting among other various pieces. I like the way he flows in and out in a broken yet continuous motion. His main technique, I think, is his use of longer words, and though they are sometimes unrecognizable, they really fit with the rhythmic tune of it all.
You are at the endings of Summer, I understand?September 16, 2019 at 9:35 am #97163
@w-o-holmes I’m pretty sure I have read Shut Not Your Doors, but I’ll have to check out the other ones. The use of long words in poetry is definitely something I appreciate/envy and am trying to work on. 😛
Yes, ending of summer I suppose. Last week it was still blistering hot and humid but this week is actually quite pleasant outdoors. And the very tips of one of our trees is a bit yellow-tinted. (:September 16, 2019 at 10:26 pm #97186
Yea, I like the way it floats off the tongue. SNyD; the one of libraries, right? Same here.
Nice; I just got the first good rain this morning. Woke up to it. It was great. You ever heard of the word petrichor? It’s one of my favourite. It means the feeling you get when you betake your nose to the smell of rain after it has rained. Something like this…September 16, 2019 at 10:29 pm #97187
@evelyn What ever style of music I’m listening to is usually what I write. My most recent one is weirdly reminiscent of a long song, which is strange for someone who never listens to romance-y music, but oh well. *shrug* I often get inspiration from thinking of a song title and then trying to figure out what it could possibly mean. xD
