Poetry for People.....

Today, a friend and I were discussing some stuff about Poetry since we both pen down our thoughts in a poetic form once in a while.....He made a rather interesting comment on how poetry is "crap" if it doesn't have something for everyone....if it doesn't apply to everyone in general...

and then he told me about a poem he had written in the 11th grade for a gal he liked a lot... :), it was a very nice poem....however soon after he recited the poem to me, he said it was "personal crap".....this is when I thought more on his previous statement of poetry catering to the masses....

and then I told him, "this poem was written with one specific person in mind and it was written solely for this person"... you just shared it with me....at some level or the other, I do connect with the poetry, it maybe the matter, the writing style or just the flow of thoughts....and then he is like.... you know what you're right.....

what do you think?????

speaking of which, boy oh boy!!!! it's been quite a while that I have written some rhyming lines ;-) hahahaahaha....well, poetry my friend is much more than that.....

so, on this note, I shall end my post here and get those poetic cells to work ;-)

Have a happy Tuesday....Friday is only two days away....

I think a poem is what you make of it. Good, Bad, Specific, General, Boring, Fun, Daring, Conservative, Beautiful... and yes.. poetry can be crap also.

Calling all poetry crap is crap.
