Ways to Practice Poetry

I'm going to get back to posting poems, trying to review books, and continue this site as soon as I can. For now, I really enjoyed this this blog post's (see the link below) five steps to practicing poetry, and they could serve as a good guide for any poet. Revision/humility and gratitude are hardest for me, but I think they're really necessary. Please check this post out on Poetry's blog site.

Self respect is the only way by which we can get respect from others. Sometimes the answer to a simple question can be harder to explain than we initially realize. It’s become a complete blast with your efforts in post.

Gotta whole lotta peAces of poetry, dear...
if you'd just follow along with us to Heaven.

Here's some illustrious, ingenious, incisive ‘Quid-Pro-Quo’ scenarios
you maaay wanna consider before picking-up your writing utensil
for the next bombastically-brilliant-chapter of thy book:

High, girl!
While I realize my penname is quite morbid, yet,
you shall find in our 24 blogs a gobba (subliminal) moxie
which has taken this mortal sinner yeeeeers to compile:
I lay it ALL out for you, dear - neet, packaged, concise.

Nevertheless, wouldn’t ya love an endless eternity
of aplomBombs falling on thy indelible cranium?
An XtraXcitinXpose with no
zooillogical-expiration-date,
with an IQ much higher than K2,
and an extraordinarily, sawcy, rowdy victory??
Here’s what the exquisite, prolific GODy sed
(with an excellent bullshot dectector):

“Faith, hope, and love,
the greatest of these is love -
jump into faith...
and you'll see with love”
Doesn’t matter if you don’t believe (what I write);
God believes in you.

Meet me Upstairs, girl, where the Son never goes down
from a passionate, prolific iconoclasm where you’ll find
astronomically prodigious,
immeasurably extensive,
monumentally tremendous,
stupendously substantial,
infinitely irresistible,
(XnonillionsXnonillionsXnonillionsXnonillionsX… )
deluxe-HTTP [<- pi] opportunities for excitement BTW.

Do it. Do the deed, dude. Sign into the Big House.
