    You wrote to me a while ago at the outset of Poets United. I thought that I would wait a short time to see how it developed. You've now got a successful site. Congratulations!

    could you tell me a little bit about how they work?
    Also can I put the logo up on my blog?

    Pamela

    ReplyDelete
  17. Yes indeed we do. They are under the "Thursday Think Tank Tab"
    And we post a new one each week. I don't let the widgets expire so you can always post to them. The latest was a "How to" Poem. We use the Mr. Lynkys Widget that just needs your name and the URL of the poem inserted in it. Then folks can go right to your blog and read read your poem for the prompt. Since we are new the following on the prompts is slow going but increasing each week. And yes you can post us anywhere you like but only do so because you want to, not out of any obligation.

  18. Robert, I wrote to you in email, but I will write here also. I am interested in being included.

    I post one poem per week usually. I am not enough of an academic to describe my style accurately but I am drawn to image, metaphor, and lines that resonate with musical sounds.

  21. Gerry I'm glad you found us. I have added you to a group and the blogroll. I think there are already two folks in your group so make sure to check them out. One poem a week is a very productive poet I feel. I look forward to reading your work. Oh and as for the academic aspect I am with you there myself I can't claim anything worth while to put on paper. I'm just a poet with a hobby and maybe too much free time lol.

  28. Fireblossom, good to see you are game and welcome to Poets United. I will say this, in my quick glimpse of your blog you kind of cheated in gaining my adoration just by appealing to my inner comic book geek. Although he has been dormant for a decent while, I plan revisit your blog shortly even if only to thoroughly review your superpowers lol. Please enjoy the others here as I am fairly certain they will yours. As I always tell everyone speak your mind and share your ideas.

    Tell us a little about your blog and your style: I am eclectic in my writing, although the poetry seems to flow a couple times a week in response to other themed sites. I don't solely write poetry on my blog, so I'm not sure if I should/could be included here.

    ReplyDelete
  30. JRM, welcome to Poets United. To answer your question first, the fact that you write poetry a few times a week should suffice enough to fit here. Some of our poets only write once or twice a month. Our focus is poetry but we do have many talented authors who dable in other styles of writing. As long as you have a consistant base of poetry to contribute to this community I see no problem with you being a part of Poets United. Just remember to be supportive of your peers. My intent is just avoid sites for now with no poetry at all and especially the ones taht are just advertisement or spam pages. It kind of would defeat our purpose lol. I look forward to reading both your poetry and other writings. Welcome and explore.

  34. Thank you, Robert, for your kind words about my poetry blog and my (cough) superpowers, lol, but unfortunately I am going to have to withdraw my participation in a poetry group, mine being 7. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you or the other three people in my group. I shall continue to visit the site, though, and to visit blogs at random, if that's all right.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Fireblossom, it is no inconvenience whatsoever. I undertsand the demands of real life or personal reasons and respect them. I will still visit your blog and it is absolutely fine should you wish to visit and use us to visit or find other poets. That is the ultimate intent of this community. If ever you should change your mind and want to be shackled with a group we will be here.

    The blog is purely poetry-driven, driven by prompts from various sites. Rough drafts, some revisions, trying to post a poem per day; however, usually ending up with five per week. Wide range of topics, attitudes, with food, humor, the Gulf and silliness...profoundness peppered throughout.

  45. Hi!
    My pen name is donnadies, my blog name is donnadies and the blog url is http://donnadies.wordpress.com
    When it comes to style I really don't know what to say, I like lots of different poets' work and to a large degree I guess I'm influenced by them, I think that modernism and impressionism are possibly my major influences, but that's something readers can debate. The blog is bilingual as I write in Spanish and English, mostly in English though. I have had a look at the site and I like it and am impressed by the poets on it and therefore would like to join, thanks for listening, donnadies

    ReplyDelete
  46. Howdie donnadies. I like the name. I imagine your a person named donna and these are you contributions called donnadies? I could be off but thats what it made me think of and smile lol. Anyways I have added you to a group. You are actually in the newest so be patient as 3 more will join you soon. In the mean time explore and be enjoy. I'm do a a navigation of all the blogs here.

    Greetings Robert, you can just call me Rika in short :), I just started out on writing poems not long ago and there is much more for me to learn from everyone and I hope that by joining Poets United, I can get more inspirations to share with people in the Poetry Community. I also learnt how to appreciate poetry works done by people and I really enjoyed it very much.

    For the poems that I written, I normally do image manipulation for the picture that the poem required, and created them using Photoshop to make sure it goes with the poem =), writing poetry for me is really great as I can express feelings through them which i don't really want to write them in such an obvious way XD.

    Thank for coming by my website and i hope to bring everyone more surprises and wonders in the poetry world^^

    ReplyDelete
  51. Hello Rika and welcome to our community. I enjoyed reading some of teh poem in you blog while listening to some calming violin music. You are very talented. I look forward to reading more of your work. I have added you to a poetry group and our blogroll so you are good to go. I hope you enjoy being a part of Poets United and let us know if you have any questions.

  53. Thank you very much =) I am honored by your words and able to have this chance to join this community, i was inspired by a blogger to start writing just not long ago and I really like it :)

  54. Hey Fiveloaf I am sorry about the mix up and made the proper correction and yes you are in 7 lol. I am thinking maybe I had the band Flyleaf on the brain. Im pretty certain Flyloaf is not an endearing name lol. To answer your question about the groups, yes just explore their blogs and comment here and there being supportive and feel free to go beyond.

  62. Good day to you Templeton's Fury. Let me start out by saying I really like your pen name and the name of your blog. I look forward to to reading your work. I have added you to a group and the blogroll and I'm sure you are already off exploring Poets United. Welcome aboard!! As an fyi we really don't do outright critiques since no one can better judge your poem than you. This does not mean that you can't request them from your group members or others. This is done because some folks just wish to be read and not told their work is bad. If you request it I am sure some folks will oblige but as a whole we won't volunteer criticism I hope you understand. Besides I'm sure you write ten times bette rthan and I so I would not be a good judge lol. See you in the blogosphere!

    Tell us a little about your blog and your style:
    My blog is mostly all poetry, though I occasionally throw in a vegan recipe or some sort of commentary. The name comes from a line in my favorite song, "Pheasant" by Shook Ones. The song resonates with me because I spend a lot of time on the road (either by car or bicycle). I write predominantly free verse, I enjoy haiku as well as odes and have dabbled in Diamante

  70. Hi Robert (and everyone else too!) -

    Sorry I've been such a dud thus far....I'd like to remove my name from my group at this time (sorry guys, it's nothing personal!). I'm hitting a wall with my poetry lately, and these summer days are overflowing with kid-dom. Sadly, I just have nothing to contribute at this point. I'm keeping my pen active nightly, in my notebook, and hope you will be able to re-place me when I come back from "vacation" - I'm shooting for the start of school in September.

    Until then, I will continue to check in and read all the goodies these wonderful groups of poets have come up with!

    Thank you for putting together such a wonderful site. I truly look forward to being a part of it in the not-so-distant future.

    - Dina

    Welcome to Poets United we are happy to have you. I have added you to the Blogroll and to a group. You can find that group in Poetry Groups page.

If you have any questions feel free to ask away and I hope you enjoy exploring our community.

  72. Dina,

    Thank you for be so courteous and considerate. You are exactly what Poets United is about. I am sorry you have hit a wall but with real life and what not I can understand a need for breaks. I hope all works out well for you and we look forward to welcoming you back sometime in September. We would do so gladly, just let me know when you are ready. Good luck and be safe oh and hide from the Kids every so often for your sanity.

    I would love to be added to the Poets United community of poets. I write a lot of Haiku, and poetry of differing styles, personal, observational and sometimes terrible. lol It would be great to get feedback from other poets and writers with the same interests.

    Thank you

    I think this is a great idea and would love to join. I usually post something about once a week or so. I've always been shy about sharing my work so after some pushing I decided to set up a blog. Poetry is a great stress reliever from me and I usually write about whatever I go through but sometimes I write off of concept as well.

    I am a young and developing poet, and i am trying to get my work recognized and read. I have been writing for years, so along with new poems that i post often, i am also trying to add older poems that i wrote and have all saved from the past. I would love to be apart of this site, because all i want is for people (especially talented and more experienced poets) to read my work and give me some feedback. My heart is on a platter in these words, and i just want my poems to be known.

    I found out about this site through jingle's blog.

    About me and my site: I have started to write poetry many times, but the energy never lasted very long. I put up a blog for fun, and hoping that it would help me persevere. Jingle's site introduced me to a circle of writers who also read. So I am now writing and reading regularly. I look to post one or two poems a week. I think your structuring of small writing groups is a great concept.

    Robert, thanks so much for your invitation to join Poets United. I am in my 50s, and have only been writing poems for a about a year, mostly in the last 3 months. If I have to say who I write like, I guess it would be a combination of Gary Snyder and Bukowski. However, at times I feel Whitman coursing through my veins. Whether my poems are good or bad, I just like to write. It does cleanse the soul. I would love to communicate with other poets. Once again, thanks for this great opportunity.

    My name is Cynthia. My blog's title is Poemflesh

    http://poemflesh2.blogspot.com

    I started blogging about three years ago. I wrote a poem
    a day for a year which was fun and challenging. A new poem
    posted on poemflesh2. about once a week. Also, about every
    other month I post Dialogue - an interview with a poet
    writer or artist. My poetry is hard to describe. I would
    say romantic, melancholy, postmodern. A good amount of
    haiku frequently show up as well.

    Thank you!

    Ola, tudo bem - My name is Richí and....I've been writing poetry since the age of seven. It serves as a medium that I bleed out some of the bad, and good blood- that I draw from life's oxygen. All of my poetry is inspired by everyday occurrences, at the most spontaneous moments (hence why it's 6:36 am and I'm still awake lol). The blogging went hand in hand, served as a, diary if you will; people got interested, so I took it upon myself to share my life/art with the world. This site looks promising, and I'd like to be apart of the community.

    Wow, this has really taken off. Congrats! I would love to be added to your blogroll but I am curious to know more about the groups to which you refer. Thank you.

    I found your site via other poet bloggers and I am drawn to your Thursday prompts. They have me thinking of all kinds of things to write!

    My blog is newer than yours and I update several times a week. Although, now that things are up and running, I would like to update more frequently. I write poetry, vignettes, fiction, non-fiction, and more. I started creative writing over 25 years ago. I don't know a lot except that I love to write and want to learn how to do it better and bigger!


    Thank you.

  108. Dear She, I have put her here amongst the masses. Welcome to Poets United. I have added you to our Blogroll and a group. But before I go further I shall explain the groups concept. When you join not only do you get placed on our blogroll but you also are placed into a small 4 person group. A home if you wnat to think about it that way. We would like it if you became a regular visitor to your groups blogs. Its no more than 3 people so its not a huge undertaking. The idea is to foster some regualr support for your poetry and maybe introduce you to new people. What your group does with this is up to its members. Some are great interactive groups who are constantly commenting and supporting each other. Others are just simple and courteous stopping in every so often. You of course can explore further but we just figure it hellps the shy or new to the blogosphere folks. In my group I have 3 wonderful folks who I visit often and always vist me. So it depends on what you do with it.

    Enough rambling from me.

    I have added you to both places and be sure to check us out on Facebook. We have so much to do and see and are growing everyday so please enjoy and again Welcome!

    My blog began as a suggestion from a friend who knew that I enjoyed writing yet the more I did it, the more I needed to do it. It is a place for all my writing (poetry). It is not private and the content mirrors this openness. I like to keep what I write easy to read and accessible to everyone. I figure, if it is hard to understand or comprehend than what good will it do for anyone else to read it? I realize that I will never pay my bills with poems, but reading the work of others has a powerful ability to move us all. If I ever had a goal it was to put into words what others are thinking. That is what I want to do. Glad I found your site -

    Justin.

    ReplyDelete
  121. C. When you submit posts there are two places you can do so. The first one if you wish to select a poem of your own choice is going to the Poetry Pantry. There you just use the link tool. Place your name and the url of the post you want folks to visit and hit send. Make sure to leave a commnet to get other's attention. Second place is The Thursday Think Tank. write for the weekly prompt and post the same way with the link tool. Also if you are looking for more places to post your poetry and share the Monday train is a good place and can be found on the Explore Other communities tab in the top right of this page. I hope this helps you.

    I write poems. Sometimes 8 or 9 a day. Sometimes writing 1 a day is like swallowing sand. I don't so much write for the technical quality of a poem, but rather to describe my experiences (pretty tough for me). Lately I've been trying some forms and having fun with them. All in all, it's been REALLY fun writing this last month.

  150. First, thank you for stopping by my sight and becoming a follower. I can at least return in kind.

    Pen Name: The Unknowngnome
    Blog Name: The Unknowngnome Poems
    Blog URL: http://theunknowngnome.blogspot.com/

    The blog is verse inspired by Love, Faith and Nature. I have no strict posting schedule but lately I've been trying to post at least once a week. Posting and reviewing cut into my actual time of composition so I tend to swing in guilt from one to the other when so occupied.

    You can call me Gnomie.

  151. Wow! What a web site, exactly what I've been looking to find (not very hard, apparently, as I stumbled on it quite accidentally). What’s not to like: so many lonely poets with beauty to express, sizzling quotes, canonical alchemy -- it's like cnn for poetry. Before I spend the better part of a week reading through your site I thought it might be best to ask for the honor of being included in your group and blogroll. Here are my vital statistics:

    Pen Name: William A. Sigler
    Blog Name: Poet Tree
    Blog URL: billsigler.blogspot.com

    Tomorrow I will have posted 500 poems and translations (since June of 2007) on that particular blog. It covers a lot of ground thematically, but I hope it does what it does with grace.

    Oh, and Poets United will be represented!

    My blog is all about finding the similarities between us, and my writing attempts to draw out whatever humanistic elements a story can give. The poetry also shares some space with an environmental thing I'm doing with used coffee grounds, and the two seem to complement each other in a sane but different kind of way.

    I've been writing and reading poetry on and off for years, but my blog is quite new. At the moment all the poetry on the blog is new, and I've had a rough year so it is mostly pretty 'heavy' but I may add some of my older poems at a later date.

    my poems support me when I limp, they offer me a sturdy shoulder if I want to cry, if I feel like throwing things in a fit of rage they stand steadfast in meek surrender, they help me dump all negatives in a waste bin and move ahead.
    I feel so glad to be able to share my thoughts, my observations through my writings, thanks to my blog. My blog is what I do with my grief and with my laughter. I pour them into words, pamper them with similes and metaphors and then let them be here, to be able to merge with the universe, to be into the oneness of whole human kind.

    I write poems when all else fails. And they say if e.e. cummings and William Carlos Williams had a lovechild, that would be me, not. I am neither because I am an romantic eclecticist.

    Dear Poets United staff,
    I began writing in earnest in high school. Though poetry and writing have been a part of my life ever since (and I'm 62 now), for 20 years while I raised my daughter I hardly wrote at all. Now I have picked my old habit back up and to my surprise I found all the images I had saved during those dry years are now flowing out of me. I write most days but have something finished once or twice a week. I write in the short forms of the Japanese for nature poetry often and in modern free form, using more Western techniques and sensibility. Some is lyrical, some is confessional and some is spiritual
    I am new to blogging and I am trying to understand. I like the idea of the small groups. I do want to read other poets. I enjoy the sparks of creativity I see in others' work. This is a very fertile site for poets to find inspiration from so many talented writers.
    Thank you for taking the time to manage this site. Your efforts are much appreciated.
