Hi, thoughtful poetry and confronting art..... and mathematics, are my interest. Have been writing, poetrying and painting for about 20 years and mathematicing for about 25. Of course we all have thoughts about random stuff often enough, I like putting those random thoughts into verse making sense or putting them on canvas to be a provoker. I prefer all styles of poetry depending upon my mood.

By the way, unless i state that a poem actually occurred to me, then they are all made up, fiction, whimsical, not true events, they are not biographies and only touch on uncomfortable topics to make the reader question things. I believe poetry has the ability to make us question our own morals intimately, like how the bard made us question suicide in Romeo and Juliet.

p.s. the bard didn't do suicide.

My art is

What I write in poetry does not necessarily reflect the opinions or morals of the NSW department of education...

It just occurred that when I edit a word or the name of a poem then it changes readers views about it. The issue is, their comments and written opinions about it don't change, .... I'm unsure if this is reasonable. I often change misspelt or wrong words, but nothing stopping me changing a poems intent completely. Is this an issue?

    You are totally right. For this reason only I have rewritten a poem of mine and posted it with a different name.... it wouldn't have felt right to change the poem.

    I have thought about this one as well but I agree with Jan. If I edit a poem I ask myself if the change would influence a reader's opinion. If I thought it would, or I made a large change such as deleting a stanza, I would withdraw the poem and re-post as edited. I think changing titles is more difficult because readers may not recognise a poem as already read. // Barry.

    I changed the title of the poem I posted today Lewis if I make an error or edit and change my poem after I have posted it then I don't worry about comments that were made before the changes. I always try and soup mail someone if I notice an error and don't comment on the poem until its been altered:-) hugs Jan xx

    I don't think anyone would have an issue if we correct or refine our poems Lewis - its a learning process I often tweak a poem once I've posted it:-) hug Jan xx

    My concern is for the reader leaving a comment on a poem that stays after the poet has altered the poem though. I agree with u also that changes are only ever spelling or grammar.
