Comments : Where Did Coronavirus Came From Poem

    Abstract Poet,
    While this has the "shape" of a poem, it lacks any of the elements of poetry:
    simile, metaphor, personification, rhyme, meter, repetition, imagery, etc. The grammar is also coming up short. If you want to be serious about your writing, and it sound like you do, then I recommend that you read a ton of poems (from the great poets) and study up on your grammar. This is basically a restatement of a news article you read. Why not write about how this pandemic is affecting you and your family? The more personal a poem is, the more it will resonate with others. Try to avoid things that everyone already knows or can read about themselves. Be imaginative and creative: "Show," rather than "tell."

    Hope that helps,
    Eric

      Thank you for your feedback Kiko
      I was having a writer's block so I decided to read an article on the virus I didn't know what to write about.
