    Peace God.

    I think it's more that poetry is not often bought (and even less discussed) these days. I don't think I've actually ever bought a book of poetry (not even Pac's).

    Even more so, there are few incentives to pick up a book of poetry by a Brother/Sister when you can get great stuff for free on the net. However, perhaps you would like to start a discussion on something you've read?

    I'll gladly join in, as I enjoy good poetry (even white).

    One.

    poetry is a good relaxer , a stress releaver, there are many people who
    are into poetry and the message it offers. I've picked up many books
    to feel the delivery of most artist and i buy poetic creations often,L. Hughes
    G. Brooks / M. Angelo / w. shakespeare / B. Smith to name a few great poets

    The net also have many sites where you can read and view artistic forms of
    poetry , many poets express themselves through there art work , another way
    to say it in a lyrical rhythm and a beat of rhymesthat captures readers mentally.

    Lots of poeple not into poetry for numberous of reasons .
