Sijo (4 Sites, 281 Hits) 02/04/2001 adoptable
A community for those who read, write and enjoy Sijo, the most popular of Korean poetry forms. Sijo share a common history with haiku and other Japanese forms. Sijo is a modern term for a Korean style of lyrical poetry, originally called tanga (literally, "short song"). The sijo strongly resembles Japanese haiku in having a strong foundation in nature in a short profound structure. Bucolic, metaphysical and astronomical themes are often explored. The lines average 14-16 syllables, for a total of 44-46. There is a pause in the middle of each line, so in English they are sometimes printed in six lines instead of three. Most poets follow these guidelines very closely although there are longer examples. From Wikipedia.

WebPoets (39 Sites, 180 Hits) 08/11/1998 genessa
For poets with a web presence.  The image is of Olympia Fulvia Morata (1526-1555), Italian poet and humanist scholar.  Her poem, "To Eutychus Pontanus Gallus," translated by Holt N. Parker:

Never did the same thing please the hearts of all,
and never did Zeus grant the same mind to all.
Castor is a horse-tamer, but Polydeuces is good with his fist,
both the offspring of the same bird.
And I, though born female, have left feminine things,
yarn, shuttle, loom-threads, and work-baskets.
I admire the flowery meadow of the Muses,
and the pleasant choruses of twin-peaked Parnassus.
Other women perhaps delight in other things.
These are my glory, these my delight.

Dark Poetry (5 Sites, 1 Hits) 09/10/2000 adoptable
Dark Poetry is a ring for that poetry which is written more from the inside, not covering up all those dark feelings we feel in our daily life. Fine Lines, poetry, published and unpublished. GenerationX feel. Anxiety mixed with hope. Fine lines between love and hate, sanity and insanity. Dark poetry. People who write like I do. People who want to make others think and feel. People who don't feel the need to follow rules and aren't afraid of offending others, but often are worried about doing just that!
