i often get chastened
for omitting punctuation
for not capitalizing my i's
they have branded me unwise
thought mister ee paved the way
he was a pioneer poet in his day
since we share the same name
on him i will dump blame
so if i emulate him
is it his sin
if words are raw
have we broken the law
some comments don’t make any sense
unless the poetry police revoked my license

|I strongly believe that a true poet writes what he wants, expresses in his own way, does not have to fence in his words with perimeters that others invented. I have no problem with people who op to do Haiku, Senrus, Odes, specific rhyme patterns etc but we must lways keep in mind someone invented these and there is no law of poetry...write what you feel.

|I love how you write, Kathy; always have, always will! Those who chastise you need to get over themselves! Write on as you see fit!
(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. ;D
