    Hi, I love poetry, and we have a poetry section with hardly any poetry in it. Where are the poets. I would love to see some new poems, and find out who all here has poetic talents. Look out for something new from me soon.

    Do haiku's and limericks count as poetry?:confused:

    Haiku's definitely, I'm not sure about limericks, but I don't see why not so long as they're clean :D

    Whats the syllabic structure of haiku's again? I've forgotten

    in Japanese, traditional haiku is 5-7-5 syllables, but us english speaking peoples have corrupted it a bit. Some try to stick with the 5-7-5, and some (like myself) go for a bit more freeform.

    Yeah I have always used the 5-7-5 structure myself.

    Am I!!!!honestly. I don't write much. I'm not crazy over writing, but it is a gift that I have. I'm not great because I don't write as much as I should to become great, but I can do a little something here and there. I have come up with some pretty amazing ones.

    I would just like to say that you can look forward to more poems from me really soon. I have written several, and I will bring them on the site when I have more time. They are much better than the others I wrote....because I spent a lil more time on them;)

    I just read all the poems in the Poetry section; enjoyed them. I would love to see some more. I wrote a poem and stuck it in my journal. It's sort of dark-themed (but not scary); I don't know if it's the right sort of thing for the magazine or not.
