What is modern Poetry?

Blog Posted:10/31/2013 11:17:00 PM

Poetry has undergone great transformations and in this “era of surveillance” where exploitations, accusations and everything happens under light, poetry needs a new definition.The truth is nature is spoiled badly and the individuals are no peaceful. Inner fights and external wars are in abundance. In such a world modern poetry needs a new definition.
In my presumption the modern poet could be one who strikes the right balance to benefit him, society and the poetry community. As the society runs for money, we do have to change and adopt all ways to entertain and keep the crowd following or else poets will be ostracized and branded as insensitive.
Not necessarily nature, love, romance, values ,virtues, truth and reality but also awareness, good causes, whistle blowing should be considered by way of new genres or the old ones to make people happy and aware.
I believe in Poetry Soup we have a variety of poets specialized in specific genres and also some capable to perform in all forms. Ultimately Soupers are a different kind who is for the welfare of the poetic community. Even though conflict of interest arises it is being sorted out amicably.

I guess 1 trick pony was a poor metaphor, I'll adjust my perception ;) even a pony who WE think only knows 1 trick really knows MANY, we/I was only looking at THAT 1 trick! Hey the pony can RUN, it can mate, it can bring joy, it can perceive love! SO I was limiting my perception and all of the people who THINK they only can do one thing WELL are limiting theirs.

I have been reading Archie's poem and he may think he only does RHYME well, but I think he does some fine meter, metaphor, personification, alliteration etc. sometimes labels/names -self-concepts limit us more than anything else

Poetry IS life, life is poetry, the world only seems to change, it is not the world which actually changes but our interpretation of what's happening as it relates to us. If we see life on planet earth [the world, our world] as part of a larger organism we view the planet with its life forms .. one way, if we see the earth as 'special' 'different out side the natural order' we 'see' it another way. As a poet you must 'see' as much as you can, 'feel' as much as you can 'show' as much as you can. A good poet is not a 1 trick pony ;)

Debbie you can't be wrong.Once my son said "Dad writing about nature is almost exhausted. what is left to write?" I said "son its the perception of the poet that is appreciated.Only I can exploit my perception". what you said is really great. let one trick and five trick ponies also live!

Does that mean an athlete isn't a good athlete just because he or she excels in, say, basketball rather than baseball? I think it's ok to be good or great in a specific field and doesn't make me any less of a good poet just because I am a rhymer, any less than a heart surgeon is less of a doctor because he specializes in the heart and not the kidneys ;)

I can't say I agree with you, Debbie. I would probably be considered a "1 trick pony" since I primarily only write in rhyme, but I focus on it because I believe I do it well and have little interest in writing "haikus" and styles like it.

I admire folks who can write poetry that speaks to politics and things that are bad for society. I simply cannot do it. I often have to resort to humor or parody because it is just not my talent to write that way. Yes, it is so cool to see all kinds of poets and some whose specialty is this type of modern poetry you speak of.

I'm with you, Andrea. I don't write pieces that are "socially conscious"; if I do, it's purely coincidental or accidental. Maybe it's because I am too concerned with my own feelings and emotions. Who knows. Anyway, loved your reply :)
