I feel very VERY good about this Umbrax!

Whether a thread or 'forum' started up for Poetry, in the last while or years, doesn't matter. ~ There isn't a proper forum to date.

Something was lost in the shuffle...for whatever reason.

It's DUE time that members and others can 'share' our thoughts in metaphorical/etherical/ and otherwise ways!

I'm EXTREMELY Greatful that Springer has Concidered/Posibly to ADD another Canopy of ATS THOUGHT'in this light.

Fine, Let Poetry be the Thead that Cuts Cords With Humanity,

DUMB, Deep Underground Military Bases are William Coopers White Horse,
REM, Rapid Eye Movement reveals Reptilian hind brain in said caverns...
Horse, Heroin imported by Bush in VitNam is On the Rise Since Afghanistan's E.
WHY, Will Humans listen You?
HENCE, Have you considered the implications of a third world war? It will Enhance the the illuminati's agenda of world domination and Neo nazi Control. En-case you've missed the meaning I'm talking about demonic warfare and nazi-satanic bohimian grove control of all of humanity.

so um... will this be for only poems written by us or can we submit our favorite works of others as long as we give credit where credit is due?

I think it would be preferable that the poetry be your own. If there is a poem that you consider outstanding, perhaps it could be presented as a topic for discussion, but posting reams of poetry from others should not be allowed, imo.

Where would your opinions/ideas/poetry fit into it otherwise?

ideas of a poetry thread? I think that it would be great with original or without, I was just asking because I dont write in stict ryme but I love to read it...

I might be able to handle roses are red....lol

other that that, I write stories where there are no set in stone rules...lol.. just let the words take you.

Now spells on the other hand, I can do..lol
but I dont think that that is appropiate on here.. do you?

The idea that poetry NEEDS to be in rhyme is one that many people have, but I deeply disagree with.

Perhaps that's why I think allowing posting of a poem from one of the many greats is a good idea. It can be an example for discussion to show the variety that poetry has.

btw... Spells ARE poetry, imo.

Is there a way to make all of our poems
where no one can claim them as their own?
I don't want to write a poem in vain
And see it signed with a different name.
Does anybody care if it's used by another?
To me it doesn't matter one way or the other.
Is there a way to copyright them for only ATS
I feel that a poetry forum should be the best.
I'm all for it Ducky, and I'm ready to write
Member poems would fit perfect on this sight.
Thank you Springer for your commitment too!
Just wondering if we can write one about you?
Let's take a vote and see how many agree
That this place needs a forum just on poetry.

I'm in.

Rather than answer to your entire poem, Solarskye, I'll just answer to the concern expressed within.

At the bottom right hand corner of every post you will find this;

copyright & usage

Click it and read it through and you will find that it is protected both for you and the site itself.

Speaking of spellbinding, non-rhyming poetry, here's the opening verse of This Lime-Tree Bower my Prison

By Samuel Taylor Coleridge, one of the greatest of the great mystic poets;



Well, they are gone, and here must I remain,
This lime-tree bower my prison ! I have lost
Beauties and feelings, such as would have been
Most sweet to my remembrance even when age
Had dimm'd mine eyes to blindness ! They, meanwhile,
Friends, whom I never more may meet again,
On springy heath, along the hill-top edge,
Wander in gladness, and wind down, perchance,
To that still roaring dell, of which I told ;
The roaring dell, o'erwooded, narrow, deep,
And only speckled by the mid-day sun ;
Where its slim trunk the ash from rock to rock
Flings arching like a bridge ;--that branchless ash,
Unsunn'd and damp, whose few poor yellow leaves
Ne'er tremble in the gale, yet tremble still,
Fann'd by the water-fall ! and there my friends
Behold the dark green file of long lank weeds,
That all at once (a most fantastic sight !)
Still nod and drip beneath the dripping edge
Of the blue clay-stone.

No I just thought of it while I was posting it. And thanks Masqua, I ready to write even better poetry now. It's a great idea Duckster, thanks for posting it. It's actually been awhile since I've wrote anything being busy and all, but I do have two tablets full of poetry and songs.

I'm basically fighting for a Poetry Forum in General.

It would be a place where YOU and I can post our writings...post our Poetry, and discusss our writings, as well as contribute our intellectual thoughts towards Contemporary/Historic/Present.

A place where we ALL can contribute to this ATS site...in a positive way.

yea but it sounds better dont you agree?

yea but the content could be mistaken, dont you agree? and others might be against? I would not want to offend anyone. and i agree, to dissect a poem has its benifits... but only if a million are not posted all at once.. i think that if everyone submits a title then vote on one to be posted, then discuss when that is done pick another so on and so forth? just an idea.. and would it be fair to critiqe a members original art? without being just plain downright mean?

that really was good and spur of the moment too.... it takes me days to think in between lifes busy ways.. work, school, kids, big kid (b/f_ lol.. and home life to boot... but i have a few if spells dont offend thee...

I think it should be all about poetry and poets and when someone wants to write their own poem then great. This is a discussion board and all of poetry should be discussed whether it rhymes or not. And I like discussing poems that poets have wrote already. Just my 2 cents.

Masqua!!!

I highly agree with you on this one!

Poetry doesn't always have to rhyme.

It takes many forms, from many cultures!

Look at HAIKU


Many gifted English haiku poets have written definitions of the English form of haiku. The definition below is derived directly from the definitions that I have read and from my own limited experience in writing and reading haiku.

Haiku is a minimalist form of poetry. The writer has 17 or fewer syllables through which to convey an experience. Here's an example of a translation of one of the Japanese Master Issa's haiku. In English, it has 9 syllables.

reed warblers
sing the great river
still


Issa


The many intracasies of poetry have made my own heart skip a few beats...and them some.

Using our minds to the fullness...even to create that which we think is 'known', is not known to the fullest...by any degree.

This is the birth...of creation. ~ TheDuckster~

Thank you Chiyanne for your kind words. I don't mind spelling to much as long as I can make it out.

I have six kids and have to read their writing and speach.
