  •  My dear trking, glad you like my work. (7+ / 0-)

    I have a kind of compulsion,
    or desire,
    to make myself very clear,
    when writing;
    don't want my readers confused.

    Plus,
    I enjoy writing poetry,
    since I sometimes get a good reaction from a few readers,
    like you just gave me.

    So, a few years ago,
    I started writing everything I write here at Daily Kos
    in free verse,
    hitting the enter key
    when it feels to me like a good time to pause.

    And double space between sentences.

    I've had a few folks here tell me
    it hurts their eyes!

    When I look back,
    and read what I've written,
    most of it seems clear enough to me,
    and at least some of it
    gives enough feeling
    to pass as poetry.

    I tend to remember my most positive words of praise for my work,
    and keep on doing it this way.

    So:

    I liked your poem.  At least I think it was a poem.  

    Seems to me,
    if you like it,
    and it feels like poetry,
    then I must be some kind of a poet.

    You certified me!

    Thanks.
