View Full Version : Do poetry book just pop on you?

I was taking a break from short fiction, and while I knew I wanted to write poems, eventually all of a sudden I had like eighty poems on my hands.

I'm still pruning to find which ones are the best ones I wrote, though that may take another reader/singer than I to find them. The fact that they read on a grade one or forth level is as much as I know.

Also a friend asked me about my poetry books. Which is probably the strangest feeling ever. As I'm extremely shy about sharing my work. I'm still not sure what will work orating compared to text. What may work in text, I found may not translate to speech.:/

why not just read them aloud to yourself to find out
maybe not as good as reading them to others
but still will give you an idea about how they translate
my two cents

Not sure I completely understand the question. Are you wondering about which poems would be good recorded, or which to include in a book?
