Poet Lady Katz: new forum reply to Climate Change

New reply from Susan Katz

<p>Thank you for your poem that speaks to one of the most important issues of our time.  I feel your emotions and your message is honest and right on!  However, if we are trying to craft the message in the form of poetry, it needs less "telling" and more "showing."  By that I mean, the poem needs images.  What better subject than the destruction of our planet by polluters and greed, to present with strong and powerfully emotional images."Floods, draughts, fire and tremors happening are the proof," – How about including more in the way of imagery here?  "Waters rise like giant hands, erasing landscapes – the earth burns itself dry, hungry flames eat the landscapes/ tremors shake us till we tremble like leaves in a strong wind…"  In other words – show us your passion – make us feel it, deep inside and then, your important poem will become more than a message, it will become a message formed in pure poetry.</p>
<p>I will consider your poem for Featured Poem of the Month for December.  Thank you for your interest in www.poetladykatz.com  Your friend in poetry, Susan</p>
