Have you noticed?

Do certain words tend to reappear in your poems? Flipping through my stuff, I've noticed several: whiskey, weep, lion, spider, flies, silver, child...probably more that have slipped my mind at the moment. What words, if any, do you find yourself repeating?

Re: Inspiration

[quote="WordSith"]Where do you all get your inspiration for poems? I have trouble coming up with topics but when I'm given one I can usually write something. It may not be good, but you know, for practice. I want the inspiration to come from inside though, like bubbling up as something I w...

[quote="Nate"]Agnes, The only other thing I've seen that you can do is {color=efefef} a series of periods, however many you need{/color}, except you close "color=efefef" and "/color" in []. If done correctly, it should look [color=efefef]...................................

Technical Difficulties

Okay, I admit it. When it comes to computer stuff, I'm retarded. :oops: Can anyone tell me how to post a shaped poem so that it doesn't lose its shape? It looks okay when I paste it into this box thingy...then when I preview it, all the lines are sucking the left margin. Woe, woe, woe is me. :cry: A...

Did you see our avatars side by side? :shock: If those aren't twins, they're at least sisters. Yeeheehee.

pantoum

I have written several pantoums. Here's one of my favorites. Ode To My Girlfriend's Father I'm terrified, I said. Shadowed ghosts of sound roam and haunt my head. I guard sacred ground. Shadowed ghosts of sound, like whiskey-scented whispers of violence, I guard. Sacred ground lies under the weight ...

Hello

Hello, everyone. Kim (Wordsith) invited me. I haven't written any poetry in 5 years, so I'm feeling more than a bit rusty. With a little luck, I'll loosen up sooner rather than later. A bit of background on me: I was born in Michigan. I've lived Arizona for 13 years now, I guess. I'll be 45 this mon...
