Writing Poetries

Today, I'm going to shift from blogging and giving some tips on different things to giving you on an article or several articles on writing poems or shifting yourself to writing poetries. This is to prepare, I hope, my readers for some poetries that you are about to read in the coming future. Yes, in case you don't know, I also write poems of different types, kinds and emotions. But here's the problem, those poems are only for personal somethings, hehehe. Anyway this still my blog, so I can do anything I with it, right? Hehehe.

To tell you the truth, writing poetries is not so corny as many people would say and feel about it. Writing poems and involving yourself in the art of writing poetries are just signs that you are expressing yourself freely and letting go of your emotions. Letting go of emotions is one way of controlling your feelings towards a thing or person. For me, it is also a sign of showing strength. Okay, now lets go on with the blog entry. Aaaaaww!

Writing a poem is not as hard as it looks. In fact, writing in the art and language of poetries gives a different blend, texture and feeling to writing itself. Poetries, according to wikipedia, are forms of literary art in which language is used for its aesthetic and evocative qualities in addition to, or in lieu of, its ostensible meaning. It may be written independently, as discrete poems, or may occur in conjunction with other arts, as in poetic drama, hymns or lyrics.

Writing beautiful (and not-so beautiful) poetries is a wonderful outlet for different human emotions. It is also a medium of expressing different ideas, concepts, information, and feelings that produces entertainment and pleasure to readers, especially if the poems are well-written and heart-felt.

What makes a well-written poetry?

Well, I am not really an expert on poetries but for me, a great and well-written poetry or poem touches the heart of the reader. It affects a reader or readers in one way or another. It may also make the reader use his/her imagination on what he/she reads and feels, depicts pictures in his/her mind, uses the mouth for proper hearing of rhymes and tones and of course make the English (or any) language really, really very effective to all the aspects that were mentioned! A total mixed-up of all the ingredients, actually!!!
