      Well, thanks for the good wishes, and you’re welcome for the reboot. But, I am so poetry illiterate I don’t know one kind from another. So, I’ll leave it to you professional poets. That’s what you are now, you know? A professional poet, and how wonderful that is. So way proud of you!

    It’s not so much about knowing the various forms andpatterns–although that is certainly a good place to start learning about poetry–it’s more about recognizing imagery techniques, and creative twists of language that makes poetry work for me. If you can surprise readers with a magical phrase, or draw them into the experience of the poem with unusual sensory pictures…ah, now we’re talking poetry! It’s about shaking off the fear of breaking rules, and simply playing with words and images, and the sounds words createin your ear.

      Well, I’ve written a few pieces that I’d consider poetry but if I had to categorize them I couldn’t do it. Ah well, they were fun to write in any case.
