I'm not asking people to understand poetry or even to appreciate it, but when your family reads your 5-7-5 and says they were expecting a "proper poem" then you start to wonder!!
Diana L Crawford: Haha! I never realized all the various styles of poetry, but am so glad I discovered them - even the 5-7-5. Wait til you do a 2-4-2 or a1-3-5 LoL!! Keep writing and being inspired by the many forms of poetry! -
