~welcome to my poetry page~

This page I made to display poems mainly in 3 categories: prose with a rhythmic scheme, prose written more freehand, and prose created in a mixed style of some kind. Also, other items and insights will be posted here as new material is made and implemented.

rhythmic prose

non-rhythmic prose

special prose


finally added new poems to both rhythmic and non-rhythmic pages. the prose is not new in and of itself; most of the new additions were poems i had written in the past, however they are new to ET members here~

also: newly added is the poem i submitted long time ago for the Valentine's Day Poetry Competition, called Patience. that poem, along with the one i did for the Scifi Competition, Sojourn, can both be found in the Rhythmic page~

2008-05-16 [SilverFire]: Not to be a pedant, but I don't think the word you're looking for is 'prose', since prose and poetry are mutually exclusive categories, if it's one, it ain't the other. Prose is writing that's not in verse.

2008-05-17 [deRevenant]: wow, a comment finally! i figured nobody here cared about my wiki's....
yes, you're correct about the literal definitions of 'prose' vs. 'poetry' -- i intentionally use the word prose for my own purposes since oftentimes people think of the stigma of "poetry" as something innane and rediculous, not to be taken seriously; prose is a word with more sophistication and class to it, so i wanted that particular word to attract people into reading what i wrote in the following wiki's.

{sigh} sadly, it seems no comments ever get left on the poetry pages themselves....

2008-05-17 [SilverFire]: How have you tried advertising your page?

2008-05-18 [deRevenant]: the answer to that: i haven't. i figure that if people are interested in poems when they visit my house, they will read through my profile and discover the links for themselves, which is why i always try to keep a "tidy" but also interactive house.
you might be wondering if i have a page for writings over at elfwood; i tried once to get accepted there, however they denied my request (apparently those guys are extremely strict about things!) and so i lost interest in elfwood entirely. i like ET more anyway, i'm used to making wiki's here, its fun! :D

2008-05-18 [SilverFire]: Yes, Elfwood are ludicrous in some of their rules -.- it put me off ever updating my gallery.
Firstly, despite your deliberate reasons for using 'prose' some people might not bother to find out why you're using the wrong word. They might just assume that you don't know what you're talking about, and not click. (And I must say, that I never encounter the stigma you think poetry has in anyone above the age of 14). There are lots of lovers of poetry here who certainly don't have any stigma against poetry.

To get your poetry some attention you can try nominating one of the poems for the Daily Poem, you could try nominating the wiki at Featured Wiki and asking to have it added to The Wiki's Wiki Page

2008-07-25 [Artsieladie]: You might also try placing your wiki (poetry part) on Poets meeting point. There are also forums here:
for advertising:
<forum:Advertising in Elftown>
for poetry, specifically the Daily Poem:
<joinforum:225:Poems> (Daily Poem forum)
for writing:
Maybe one or some of these suggestions can help? ;)

2008-07-26 [deRevenant]: [Artsieladie], [SilverFire], thank you kindly, yes i'll be taking a look at the various wiki's for poems and such :) 

actually, i really need to reorganize things regarding my poetry pages, and naturally i have not been able to utilize time for ET updates, i have new poems i wrote somewhere but have not been uploaded to ET yet; lot of things on my "to-do" list for ET i guess (argh, if only i didn't have to spend so much time in the "real world" :p lol)

2008-07-28 [Artsieladie]: You're welcome. Actually, thank [Hedda], too, b/c I followed his examples he used on pseudo html to here. :) Well, unfortunately, we can't escape the 'real world'. ;)
