For me I love poetry with good meter and rhyme. Since being on P&Q I have discovered lots of poems that are quite brilliant which dont rhyme and dont seem to have much meter but they do have great visual descriptions and inspire emotion and thoughts.
I write nearly all of my poetry from my bed when a thought will come to me out of the blue and I suddenly feel the urge to write. I have no idea where it comes from but at the oddest moments I get the strangest of ideas. I love rhyming words and though I try hard it is nearly impossible for me to write a poem that doesnt rhyme in some way or another.
In answer what constitutes poetry to me -
"Poetry is a collection of words that comes direct from another's mind, heart and soul - that captures, touches or speaks directly to mine"
