Taos' Poetry Slam
So....I'm a poet. Sorta. I've written poetry since I was a little kid. I never really pursued it beyond something that is a hobby and a form of expression for me.
I love poetry though and I know we have alot of great writers here so I was thinking maybe I could get a topic started where we share our poetry with each other!
Forgive me if I'm missing a "poetry catch-all" but a forum search didn't turn anything up.
I'll start by sharing a poem and I'll add a poem a week or so to try to keep things going.
Or....the topic will be utterly ignored and I'll just let it fade away in dignity. I know poetry isn't exactly en vogue these days.
This isn't a topic for critique per se' but if the author wants feedback on their poems that's cool. I just want this to be a topic where we share our creativity instead of playing word police.
Maybe the best place for advice, critiques, etc would be private messages to the individual to avoid any hurt feelings.
Anyway...I am a firm believer that poety is good for the soul so here we go....
