Poets and poetry

What’s the matter with them?

They want not any rhyming poem.

These poets of present time,

Don’t they know how to rhyme?

Whatever then!

    1. Haha! Thanks so much, Jackie. You are so right! I don’t think I rhyme a lot these days. I think the rhythm works well enough, too. I think I get lucky when I find rhyming words that best express what I want to say in poetry.


      1. I recently came across a blog post asking for poetry submissions but then they said, Please no rhyming poems.

        I myself write both rhyming and non-rhyming poems whenever the mood suits me.

        I usually find my rhyming poems the more surprising since usually I take my poem in a direction I never thought of going when I have to find a word that rhymes with the previous line.

      2. I realized I missed this comment of yours. Apologies!

        As you do, I also write both. Sometimes, the rhymes are just there. I don’t ignore them
        When they are not, and I look for them but don’t find them, I don’t force the issue.

        The beauty and mystery of writing! We are blessed!

        I hope you’re well.

    1. I’m happy to hear you’re well.
      I’m still battling with the same demon that’s holding me back from writing and being back here completely. Other than that, work is good, I think. And family, too.
      Much love and hugs.
