How do you write poetry?
A curious question
With no true answer
For it depends on style
And the mind behind the words

Follow the rhythm
Either by dream or plan
To put your heart
Onto the empty white
None can forge this poem
Besides your hands and mind

About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.

    How do I write?
    All right, I’ll bite.
    Let me put you wise:
    As an exercise,
    Each night I pour
    A dozen words or more
    On a page and see
    What comes to me.

  2. I liked the hands and mind reference.


  3. I like the hand and mind connection too Charles. Well done!


  4. “To put your heart onto the empty white” sounds about right. πŸ™‚

    How I wish there were a formula
    a recipe or grocery list
    that makes writing prosody
    as easy as one two three
    mix the words and let them rise
    like baking bread or maybe pies
    hmmm … when it comes right down to it
    I guess a poem is nothing more
    than writing a story or dialogue
    (sometimes with rhyme)
    but without paragraphs! πŸ˜‰

    Have a good one dear Charles!
