It is my view of writing poetry

It is my view of writing poetry that we can come up with writers slump
Whereby we engage in a block that we stop writing indeed it is.
Each of us breeds forth a human touch away from each other
Therefore we embark on keeping to ourselves in private secret
We cash in on a promise to never be late again from within
Alot of time we wander in the woods of brillance minus the differences
Take time out of your busy schedule to promote a willingness to learn

An Intelectual History of Poetry

AN INTELLECTUAL HISTORY OF POETRY
Here is a primer on the history of poetry

Features of Modernism

To varying extents, writing of the Modernist period exhibits these features:

1. experimentation

belief that previous writing was stereotyped and inadequate
ceaseless technical innovation, sometimes for its own sake
originality: deviation from the norm, or from usual reader expectations
ruthless rejection of the past, even iconoclasm

2. anti-realism

Such An Awakening

Each of us can recognize the truth from a lie. Sometimes the surpassing wind blows a fairy tale. We cower to the surface to just regain some piece. We all have been given a gift to
share with each other.
Just suppose you got beyond the limits of your talent to bridge the gap of peace and love ?
A loving escape to open up to the warmth your feet to a vast new day. Embrace the arts with poetry and writing a like. It can be a vast turning point to sift through the child like genre.

Poetry at its best

we can learn from each other with the slight of pen
some move with ego to the very end
Others relish through the sound of given sense
We can carry on with song to help support
The free verse notion of writing is very good
Once you get connected from the heart of the gain
There are big differences from the will of the thought

Poetry allows the reader to truly connect
come together in order to be a success
in each episode we can achieve greatness
poetry at it's best
