Thoughts on them. Do they have to make sense to the reader or are they a flowing dance of words and at times the steps and music are only known to the writer? And doesn't this often make them something of an exciting mystery? I don't write much poetry... still.. I feel as if I don't or shouldn't or ought not to try to "fix" poetry as I might with a story. Not that poetry is better, stronger etc ... it is somewhat, at least to me, like the difference in art. The art of say a bunch of colors gloriously put together or the art with a thing, person, place etc. It's kind of hard to explain. Any thoughts?
