A dog wandered into our garden one day,
A friendly old mutt, didn't look like a stray.
We never discovered whence he had come,

Those who have studied poetry know that rhyming is only one style of writing a poem. The real criterion that defines a poem is whether I am writing something that could not be conveyed in prose. The strict grammatical rules that define prose have no place for a real poem's sentiment. At the same time a poem doesn't need to convey a profound message in order to qualify. A poem that is cute may very easily fit the this criterion as well.

Surrounded by potatoes that
I'd taste if I were able.Featured Shared Story

I can not write a poem; my brain feels fried.
It can do no more.
It is as though all my creativity has been trapped, isolated in a room without a door.

I feel the same way, but it takes like a month or two to finish one poem. When I do, some of them don't make sense.
