  1. Excellent tips for all writers – not just beginners!! Our modern society doesn’t value the “lyrical” expression as much as they did in the past especially for men. Sad that many men feel that they can’t write poetry for fear of being ridiculed…


    1. Thank you Val for bringing that out. Yes, o agree with you men now adays are dont value this anymore.. i remembered a very important tradiotion of courtship in the Philippines. Its called “harana”, where a man would sing a song to her beloved outside the woman’s home. Typically, the woman stays at the window as she listens until the song is finish and then asks the man to come in. Its a vey beautiful tradition that sadly though, is slowly dying.
