I used to hate poetry. I never read poems in schools, and I never followed poetry blogs. Now, I am starting to get the rhythm and beauty of poem. Though some poems are as hard as rocket science to understand. I like short and simple verses. Plain and precise.
One of my course mates in college used to write lots of poems. One time he even won an open poetry competition. I read his draft before he submitted for the competition. I didn't like his poem for no reason. But when I knew that his work won an open national competition, I felt ashamed. later, he even co-authored a poetry booklet. Still then, I was adamant to accept how powerful and beautiful poems can be.
I like some forms of poems, especially free verse and cinquain poems. Though cinquain is taught in year 6-7 in Schools here, I never heard of these poems, but I was excited to know that I was already writing these forms accidentally once in a blue moon. Now I will try to stick with these forms and hammer my phrases. My first trail. Hope this interest stays bit longer.
Buying, selling, saving
Quest of all greed
Courting, living, loving
Becomes more than blood
