Education / Training Poems

A Fresh Perspective by Sara Coslett

This is just another healthy distraction,
From my life of dissatisfaction.
My nights are filled with books and lectures,
In a world mired in conjectures.
I’m on my way to a degree
Attached to it is a hefty fee.
It’s a thirty-year plan
And yet it feels as though time just began. Click here to read in detail.

A Retired Teacher’s Dream by John Michael Domino

There is a yearning that I have deep inside.
It’s simply to teach others; I’ve got nothing to hide.
You don’t have to buy my program or hire me full-time.
In some situations, I don’t want a dime.
But if I can change a child’s life and make things like new.
There is almost nothing that I would not do.
But I know schools are competitive and many others want jobs.
Some need a career and feel threatened, others act like snobs. Click here to read in detail.

Action / Thriller Poetries


A Body Made For Sin by Southern Comfort

I am the Delta Queen,
I have been on my own, since I was sixteen.
I sell my body, just to survive,
As one man leaves my room, another arrives.
Oh Please don't ask me why I'm here,
I am just another fallen woman, that a wife fears.
What she refuses to give her man,
For money I will and so can.
Many a man has laid upon my ivory, rose scented breasts,
While I soothe his mind and grant him happiness.
I stroke male egos and other parts,
But when his time is up, I want him to depart. Click here to read in detail.

A Dividing Wall by Abdi-Noor Haji Mohamed (Eagle Of Hope)

I see an invisible psychological wall
Separating hearts of love in a family
As the young integrate with the Swedish
sending new roots in their new environs Click here to read in detail.

Tips for the poets who are in beginning stage


Tuesday, July 19, 2011

This article gives the beginning poet many tips for writing poetry. Learn about metered form, free style, personification, and many more techniques.

To write poetry, you must be willing to dig deep down into your soul. You must write the truth. You must write your feelings and views with a passion. These are very hard things to teach, so I will focus on the more technical aspects of writing poetry.

You try to add a unique perspective, but you know that so many other poets have described the sunrise and the sunset. You wonder how you could think of the universe and the stars in a new way. Well, you would be surprised. Many aspiring poets also struggle with getting the imagery in their verse just right.

First of all, in order to write with imagery, you must visualize the subject of your poem. If it is a poem about a tree, see the tree. You must also write down what you feel about the tree. Don't leave out any detail. What do the leaves smell like? If the poem is about a blazing fire, watch the flames flicker.

Watch the blossoms in the garden open up, breathing the air. See the orange flames lapping at the candle's wick. Can you hear the crackle of the fire burning in the fireplace? The blossom can cry, shedding the petals. The fire can voice its fury with a cackle.

Poetry must set the scene. Your reader must be able to step into the poem. They must be there with you, so you must describe it. In your head, watch the story unfold. Watch the tender rose blossom. Does it have dew sprinkled over it? What color is it? Is the color symbolic to the theme of your poem? Where is the light shining? Where is the shadow? Ask yourself what does the shadow symbolize.
