I started writing poems when I got introduced to British literature in the early 1980's. Writing poems was therapeutic as it allowed me to express myself without being too explicit.
Over the years, I always sought a rhyme for a reason. How could I write a poem that didn't rhyme?
Last year I got introduced to improvisation. Improvised music need not have a form or structure. Equivalently, poems don't need to rhyme.
Touched by a poem I received today (it did rhyme, however), I decided that my web site could really serve as an outlet for people's emotions. Rather than sending flowers, write a poem. Instead of calling the person, write a poem. Increasingly surfers are finding my Poetry Section and contributing their personal and original poems. My site has finally fulfilled its purpose: a platform for self-expression.
I keep contributed poems in the poetry section. Perhaps one day, some composer will set them to music.
