    What constitutes a POETRY?

    I want to write a poetry too but im a bit too critical about its structure and selection of words. Since i find many poets over here, i need to know what do they take care of while writing a poem, and btw i wouldnt agree if someone says that they write whatever comes into their mind because when u start writing them u dont think about the words, but then u need to polish it, so im asking how to polish it?

    3,038 not a good poetess as such but let me try>>

    too much polishing can lead to wear n to certain extent u shud let the poem remain raw! how do i go abt polishing...firstly i write down whatever is making noise in my head..not necessarily in the form of poem..then i incorporate some rhyming words, if required or synonyms of some words which would fit in better.

    and then u see..some r born poets and some gain expertise wid practice...but i dont press upon "polishing" my poems much..i let them remain in the form the way they come outta my mind.

    there r many other good poet/poetesses here, who can help u better!i said what i had to....

    happy writing!

    You can believe what you want, it doesn't mean you're right. a fact of life.

    hi Echord,

    One cant just decide to write a poem, it just comes in ur mind and u pen it down and then refine it to make it better.

    For me poem is a reflection of my mental status and my attitude.
    I mostly write poems based on love,life and reality.
    every poet has his/her own area of expertise and genre.

    iam not too gud a poet to tell you what all you can do to write poems....but maybe you can start off with reading few poems here and provide few crtical comments on them.
    Its better not to have an honor that u do deserve than to have one that you dont.

    If you are not living on edge then you are consuming too much space.

    doest it really matter????
    Well...i have written few poems....some of them rhymed some dint...& sometimes its better to leave them the way they r....cos as Vini said that if u try to modify them so that u can mk it rhyme it leads to wear n tear & the poem loses the charm...
    ppl mite find it gud but somewhere inside u kno that it was better before...

    one more thing...the more u read the more u learn...

    & dont strt writing poem thinking that u hv to...instead try to gv words to that 'somethng' that is goin on in ur mind....
    this is what i do...when somethng is troubling me divert my concentration frm that towards somethng else i strt writing...

    or may b whatevr comes in ur on IGT...evn if its a line or two....we'll try to carry it adding our piece of poetry...

    ^^^^Hope whatevr i said made some sense
