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   www.facebook.com/popartwagga

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

Featured: is there a trick to this.

Am just going through the history of my work here and discovered that, even though I've actively contributed pieces weekly since 2015, I've not had any of the writes "Featured" since January 2017. Is the Feature thing not a thing anymore? Am unsure why since the works I've done since then, in my opinion, have become far better.

I was featured recently, so they're still "doing" it.

How odd Lewis, I've just checked and don't seem to have anything featured after 2017, wonder if it is some sort of glitch and they were featured and just not showing up.

thats a thought, I wonder if the notification of feature thing has just been switched off.

That seems weird, Lewis!! All I can tell you is to ask them how it works. Hope to see more of you!

Perhaps it's a statistical editing oversight~ every two to three months, when there were far fewer members...

yep, maybe the number of people using this site has sky rocketed.

When PS drops the ball as they did here they deserve all the rhetorical questions as to why. It clearly states within your PM membership of receiving enhanced exposure of having one of your poems featured every 2-3 months. In your case, it looks like the ball bounced sadly.

Oh well, my avatar should be the invisible poet.

You have to send me $100 a month, then it will work.
