Developing Poetry

Written by
Several of our writers have been working on poetry. I hope you enjoy their work. Poetry in the current age can be anything that the writer identifies as a poem. Our writers have not tested the limits so far. More to follow (and some images when I learn how to insert them.) Ron

Here is a short article from that I sent to the members of our Creative Writing Group. Most have found this to be interesting and even helpful. While it has broad application for life, we are using the concept to refine and better understand our characters.
