I’ve read that poetry is a lot easier to write, and in most regards, it is. This is why you probably find poets churning out poetry like no one’s business. It’s a great way to let your creativity flow without the constant nitpicking and editing one does, as is often the case of novels. Then again, you have those poets that write long poems for which usually takes more care. For those who have written anything 100 pages or longer, you know what I mean. This isn’t to say poetry doesn’t have a place in the writing world. It does and should. There are great poets out there, past and present, that labored just as hard on their works as any novelist. The chance to write something is a great thing, no matter how short or long.
My first poetry collection is below. Take a look and if you like what you read, feel free to buy it on Kindle or Paperback format on Amazon. It is also available in large print.
