When you can't sleep, and don't feel like writing. Not to mention, some good debates going on here lately. What better way to pass the time than arguing?

Now C you know poets dont argue!?!
Argue is such a harsh word ... not very poetic ...
We have artistic differences.      



You know...like about the merits of rhyme OVER free verse rambles

How long can a girl be haunted by you ...
Soon I'll grow up and I wont even flinch at your name.

Butterflies don't have claws? Oh

Maybe I'm not a butterfly after all...better find new icon...obviously I"m a hawk...a BIG SCARY HAWK who will eat you up for breakfast, oh writer of cursed rhyme!

~snicker~

Ignore me - it's WAY past my bedtime, I'm talking rubbish..

you can ignore Chris too...nothing he says is worth listening to...honestly...

HEY!!!! WHERE THE HELL HAVE I BEEN??? Karen lashes into herself! You leave my butterflies alone, y'hear? OH I KNOW YOU UNDERSTAND ME...that's right...just give me back that wing, dammit...

sorry Jan...tsk..always late...(a little scotch tape maybe?)

now...

there is free verse, and there is more than just rhyme...and you guys KNOW this...there are forms, and there is much nastiness therein...
hey...I don't always like it either! Ask Nan if I've completed ONE assignment...big NOPE.

But I will tell you what I like about form--it's like an athlete hopping through tires...they don't know why they are high stepping? But it comes in handy later...and then? there is "ballet"--just as disciplined, but with more delicacy...and a lot more room for interpretation too.

So...which is best? Smiling...I am looking for the happy medium here...stomping through tires with an occasional pirhouette!

Free Verse Vs. Rhyme? hmmm...WHY DO I HAVE TO CHOOSE???

This place is great. You don't even have to argue. You can listen to everyone else argue Or, you could listen to everyone "discuss 'artistic differences'"

I chew gum and walk at the same time
I write free verse and attempt rhyme
who's to say
one can't do with the other
that one wouldn't do
without either?

And you find any sense in that, you're one up on me...
