Poetry and Poets

How can we write about, recommend and review poetry, when it's so subjective? How can we learn more as readers, or educate those who don't consider themselves "poetry people?"

All black writers don't write about gangsta's , strippers, and drugs!

LOVE, a collection of romantic poems. Poems about love of a spouse, child, family, or even the love of your favorite sports team.

-Take every notion, feeling, experience and expectation that you have on poetry and throw it up in the air, just take everything you’ve ever known about it and toss it aside. Not because the boundaries of what makes it so are being broken and not because simple fundamentals and poetic structures are being altered, no that’s not it at all. Simply take a deep breath, relax and remember that nothing is off limits, nothing is too right or too wrong or completely outside the box(pun totally intended). So untie that bow, put your hand on the corner and the book and take in that fresh page aroma and all the splendid “flavors” that is poetry.

I've just released a second book.  This is a short festive poem for Children entitled "A Hungry Monster for Christmas" .  One to read to them on Christmas Eve maybe (and hope the monster doesn't scare them!)

Hey Everyone,

Just joined this group. I am a poet with two published books of poetry. I am constantly writing poetry so I definitely consider myself one and oddly enough I just interviewed someone who didn't consider themselves one despite having wrote a book of poetry early on in their career. As for myself, I say if you write poetry religiously like I do or even if you've published one work but don't write it often you should be considered as a poet. 

This group sounds interesting, I've joined a poetry group on another site but it's not all that enlightening, hoping to find a good one with more solid contributors to it.
