Re: Okay...

I've always loved poetry, but a lot of modern poetry has left me quite cold. Your work is quite refreshing.

Re: Okay...

Thank you! I don't really write in a modern style; my roots are firmly in classic and ancient poetry. From what I've seen, most modern poetry is lacking in technical skill, a consequence of it being taught poorly and other factors.

There are exceptions, though. Speculative fiction poetry and Pagan poetry have some very talented writers, and the readership is more engaged too. That makes me happy.

Re: Okay...

That's probably why I love it so much. The "modern" style leaves me utterly cold. I've only recently discovered spec and pagan poetry. Really digging what I've found and read so far.

Re: Okay...

This is a good source for speculative poetry:

Re: Okay...

You're welcome. I'm an avid networker, so I know a lot of other poets and some assorted groups. *chuckle* It even gets me work, occasionally.
