Say "Hi" in this Thread

This forum seems like a fairly unique, interesting and pleasant corner of the internet. Smile  Mind if I join? 

About myself: I'm a Dutchie (so English is not my first language) with some years of writing experience under her belt, but still eager to learn. Sometimes I call my work poetry, sometimes lyrics, sometimes stories - I'm not sure what they really are. I don't think of myself as advanced, but I think that with practice I'll eventually find my niche. My late poetry teacher once said that I'm not very good with (poetry) rules, but that fortunately I write my best works in free form. Hence I'm seeking that fine balance between using the rules as guidelines, while also allowing space for words to flow freely.  

Will be fun to read all of your works as well! <3

All the Dutch fellows I know have exceedingly good English.
It’s almost as annoying as the fact that they’re twice your height. And have fabulous hair. Thankfully, they all wear wooden shoes

Welcome to the site, we are all really scary poetry teachers but we try to be gentle with newcomers.

Have fun  Thumbsup

Thank you for your mercy, high Lords and Ladies of poetry. I both fear and look forward to your (gentle) roasting of my works.

Tall like trees - all thanks to those wooden kickers. (To work we wear our 'fancy clogs'.) You didn't think they'd make a difference to our height? HA! So gullible... They're wooden, they're our roots! Tree-roots, get it? Tall like t- ah, nevermind... They're also miniature BOATS. One day we will add miniature sails so we can walk on water AND NO ONE CAN STOP US! We're coming for ya, Muricah!
