THE UNIVERSE OF POETRY

Limitless! Is where you can go in the universe of poetry. Set your goals as high as that glorious moon. For the steps to what we call, "Glory" are steeped in quick, fast-food poetry. Beware! No astonishment there, just jingles that make you tingle. Dont lie~ you do know fully what I mean! The fast, the quick, the puny impotent, poetry gestures, the fallibly obscene. That make both author and reader alike, shrink in stature! Twin corpses,a ghastly blue and of equally squallid, putrid ,quilled natures. Be an Emerson or a Neruda, who found their voice. Like Michelangelo,chisel your words and refine their meaning, make them choice! English, an abundant language, oh, I write in pain! Writing with words that a only thirteen year old can maintain? Oh, Lord forgive me for sacrificing the brilliant verbiage for the quick. I live in a universe where 'fast' rules all, it makes me sick, these poetic tricks! Making poets think poetry is a stand up comedy act? It's anything but..and drives me daft. For in fine poetry, there's more than just a quill. It's a Poet's finest hour, and his grandest thrill! February 12, 2020 4pm PST Dedicated to the beautiful souls here, who constantly keep lifting my quill to celestial heavens. Eternally grateful, Panagiota Romios

Hello Panagiota … the topics, genres, and words are endless as you say Panagiota. There are no fences; no ties; just a multitude of poetic minds to keep us returning time and time again - thank you Panagiota - Lindsay

Helloo, dear Ann! Trophy winner you! Gads, I am so joyful for you. I write poetry as I see things. Unfortunately, this upsets poets. It does not mean I am right. Gee! You missed the nasty post that PS pulled. I left it on for all to see. The Poet twisted my words. Don't read anyone you dislike here. Worse, insult them! You know far better. You build, you support, you help grow a poet's confidence. You just don't Read and Run. You, and others have the graciousness to reply. Bless you, dear Ann. You set an example! Panagiota xx
