I find it amazing, and maybe a bit disappointing, how many poems posted on poetry blogs are haikus.
First of all, a lot of haikus sound forced as it’s such a gentle and difficult form in which to write really GOOD poetry. I certainly can claim absolutely no mastery over ANY form of poetry, but in particular the haiku.
I really really wish, and challenge, poets to write in different forms–either formal forms or free verse, but LESS haiku’s please!?!
This might anger some people that write only haiku’s but in particular you should try to branch out…don’t limit yourself!! 🙂
Enough ranting! I just wanna read more poetry and more varied forms and content!
***EDIT*** After a comment, I figured I should add that I like poetry in a forms, but I have a hard believing that people can’t express themselves in longer more in depth forms….not to take away from art in any way.
