The Poetry Question

Discovering the Relevance of Words

QOTD – Why Are You Here?

If you read Thursday’s QOTD, and I sincerely hope you did, you are not having deja vu– or something similar.

Thursday I asked you why you are here, not just physically but metaphorically, emotionally, spiritually, existentially, and actually.  Today I am asking literally.

We have been working on The Poetry Question for close to two months now.  We have amassed 900 Facebook likes, 600 Twitter followers, 197 Blog followers, 20k blog views, and around 700 comments on that weren’t written by us.  That’s nice.  I guess.

The goal here is not fame, and the goal is certainly not fortune.  The tagline really says is all: Discovering the Relevance of Words in the 21st Century.

So, let’s explore.  Together.

The Poetry Question started as a question being discussed on Twitter.  It is now something bigger.  Ideally.

The Poetry Question is an exploration- a dialogue.  We are here for you.  But why are you here?

What do you come to TPQ for?

(We have Twenty Thousand Views and under 800 comments. Tap, tap, tap, is this thing on?)

 QOTD – Questions of the Day – This is not an ordered list, answer in whatever manner you like, but please respond

Come here often? Why do you come here? Are you a lurker (one who views but ne’er comments)?  Why? Where are you from and what do you do? What part does poetry play in your life? Any requests*?


*seriously, if you ask nicely I might write you a haiku.  Really nicely might score a sonnet.

    I’m not a lurker. I stumbled across this blog when it was a new Poetry site. I like the daily prompts, and actually miss them on the weekends. The articles are quality. I come despite this breezy silence. It is my old friend now. If I had friends, I’d come with them, but I come alone. And will continue to. I really, honestly truly believe I have my own private site to read, in TPQ, accept for the mind-bending almost 20,000 reads. That is a LOT of Google searches. Damn. Anyways, ty!
