Could everyone take a minute
And take time to check
Their postings for typos -
Then you won't have regrets.

My pet peeves is this -
Words that aren't spelled rite.
I don't mind lonnnnnnnng postings,
Or verse that's heavy or light.

I'll take my own advice
And promise to try hard
To post a poem cOrReCtLy.
Could everyone now start?

:-) hehe

Just a thought...:-))

I imagine that to post
something that's emotional
is quite hard for some
and if they stop
to check their spelling
they may take fright
and we would miss
the view into their soul

But it's just my way of thinking (as she checks her spelling ..)

redwriter - i understand more correctly if i don't have to stumble over misspelled words. And it is a good habit to get into. Just sharing my pet peeve with everyone. I am sure i misspell sometimes too. I am more concerned with the habitual misspellers, and the poems that are teeming with poor little words that have missing/extra letters.

Rainbow....my view into their soul is disrupted by my brain having to stop and decipher what word is supposed to be there.

Thank you both for taking time to read my poem.

:-)

I'm with you all the way, Genea, trying to decipher bad spelling, typo's and lack of punctuation makes reading hard going for me, too. Good one!

oh oh - I've gotta feeling lil Genea is talking about me .

When looking into some souls, the less you see the better it is for everyone involved in the peep show. (Now! Where DID I leave my flashlight?)

Sue,

Yes, i agree......and i don't mind one typo or even 2 in a piece......it's the ones with a typo per line that is my pet peeve. AND i am not talking about the common computer shortcuts like 'lol' or 'u' for you and such.

And LngJhn....i don't name names. :-)

I guess i just feel that if folks are proud enough to post their works, their souls on here, they would take the time to double check before they click "Post".
