Do You Write Poetry?

An African publishing house is compiling an anthology of poetry from young African poets. Do you feel that you are a great poet in the embryo. If you really believe in your literary ability, then contact me ASAP with your poems.

That Koan? is reminiscent of the great Dictator General Nakamura's death poem;

From nothing into nothing

Osaka castle and all that I have ever done

is but a dream

within a dream.

To thin air he went

like mist at morn;

leaving them that want

as those who mourn.

Here a piece from me:

                         

   All that we see or seem,

   Is like a dream within a dream.

More information. That's all! The temptation to go off at a tangent is awfully high on Nairaland forum.If this thread is connected to poetry,why should some members reduce the seriouness to a depressing joke?Am sick of this land!

You should give more details like the name of the publishing house et cetera.No serious poet would want to send his poem to some obscure publishing house.Instead of asking poets to send their poems to you can't they send it to the publishing house straight off? Is there a website address? any address at all would do.We need a place we can trace.
