    http://www.poetrysoup.com/poems_poets/poems_by_poet.aspx?ID=194 Read more at: http://www.poetrysoup.com/poem/writing_poems_again_642557 Peter, This person is between you and me regarding most poems produced. This should be only for the 100 who are actively writing poems. Some of these people haven't written a poem in over a year. People who haven't written poems in the last calendar should be dropped off the list. What do you think. Jim Horn jthorn5656@gmail.com Oh, and I just completed my 900th poem which was quite an accomplishment for me. I am in US and it is early in the morning here. What time is it there where you are?

    Peter, June 26, 1941 is me and 49 years of marriage as of August 27th. Was in LinkedIn. Lady asked for some comments about one of her poems. Name was Bonnie Flack. She got mad at me and suspended me and another woman from poetry part of LinkedIn. Started with www.poetrysoup.com and www.story-telling-around-the-world.com So here I am in a battle with you on total number of poems. Hope you are doing better after reading about your parasite I think you called it. There are many poets involved with many poetry webpages. I have always wrote poetry on my own with my own style and enjoy doing it. Bye for now. Jim Horn

    Peter this is my new standard, it will be sent to every future contest I see that does not use blind judging. I just sent it to good friend here to decline his contest. I can not and will not write for any contest here at the Soup unless it is being judged blind--with a mandatory stipulation that the entries have no names attached. Your new contest does not meet this requirement that would insure fair judging so therefore I must decline to enter it. God bless, Robert

I hope you can reply to this comment, as I a curious to find out what you thought of the connection between my first two poems. I am new to this community and would appreciate it! Thanks, your friend, Hani.

    My friend I find your poetry very pleasing and a good source for me to learn from! I too have never studied poetry but have read tons of it by the great legendary poets. I write because it just seems to demand to come out. Australia, man I've wanted to go there since age ten! May someday make it yet! Simply love your writes my friend.

    I was once told that Poetry is just to be read and enjoyed whether you understand it or not..I think each person comes away with something different when they read a poem..I loved the song that Woody Gutherie wrote "This Land Is Your Land, This Land Is My Land"..Woody suffered and died from Huntington's Disease like my grandson..Sad that one gifted as he was died so young from an inherited mental disease..The same will be my grandson's fate if there is not a treatment or cure found soon..Thanks for reading my work..I hope that you can always take away something from what I put in poetic form..Sara

    A brave honest write. All as well said as when you put keyboard to poems. Look forward to our ongoing conversations. I have gained two more followers on Twitter today (probably a record for me), most possibly due to your words, thanks.

    I had to come check out your page real quick and want to thank you again for reading my poems on some occasions. You know I have read some poetry, studied some, but honestly many times I don't know all the things going on in a particular person's poem. With my poetry, I may be hinting at one thing, knowing the normal reader is reading it more literally and thinks another thing, and it can be shades of both. Poetry is like art, and while some may have a sense of what is fine or not, everyone else also has the right to get their own interpretation and enjoy the poem in their own way. Why I don't explain a lot of my poems. Keep up the work.

    Peter....I do enjoy your poetry. Poetry has to be real and from the heart. Poems that strike a chord in someone's heart are usually of this kind. Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us and for your encouraging comments. They are appreciated....

    Writing is such a personal experience, I think that everyone has a style of their own......some we will understand and some we won't. The joy for me comes more from the feeling I get when I read the poem....but like you said.....it is hard to comment, when it doesn't touch you in some personal way. Nice to have you here, Peter.

    Hi, Peter, I think I have read some of your poems already but I went just now and checked out the one about Viet Nam vets. I think your kind of poetry is very valued by the general population who are not all "artsy fartsy." I am kind of "in the middle" about poetry. I enjoy simple ones easy to read, especially when they are humorous, and I love elegant poetry too, but I do not like when people use surreal imagery. Those are the poems that go over my head. It is very difficult to comment to poems we don't understand!!

    Peter, I have the same difficulties reading most poetry. I get the urge or idea and write out how I feel in a way I understand, as I beleive most poets do. A lot can be lost in interpertation. Thanks for your entry in the captcha contest, It was a lot of fun and hit home very easliy.

    good morning Peter, it's nice to know of you. I understand how the mind of a wife works. It's very kind, and wonderful how you put her first. I don't blame you, I once got in a pickle for associating with poets from the soup. I wish I could hang around with poets here :-( I respect my husband. However, I keep all my dear poetry friends near. And smile when they are near. hugs. ~Skat~
