146 -Poetic Learnings

Poem number 146
.
Poetic Learnings
.
I wish I understood
What makes a poem good
Why some verses work and others just fall flat.
.
If I only knew the rules
I could use them as my tools
To build poetry that’s lovely, just like that.
.
But maybe that’s just guff
And the rules are not enough
Perhaps it’s all instinctive, inner light.
.
And I haven’t got that spark
So I flounder in the dark
Over roads of odes to nowhere, endless night.
