I never write for an audience but I admire those who do especially and are successful. For me to write poetry for an audience assumes a skill I do not possess.

Simply I write for myself, from my heart. If people read it then that is the ultimate compliment. I think poetry is such a personal thing. It's like pouring your heart, sometimes your soul, onto paper, into text. I think all poets should write only for themselves. Poetry is that personal.

Writing a novel or the banality of contributing to a blog or mag on some subject or another, that is writing for an audience. Poetry is quite different.

I am by far no poet and all who read me know it.
I can not make a rhyme even given plenty of time.
I write to myself and hope all who reads it never put me on a shelf.
Basically, my poems are for me and anyone that wants to see.
If they are enjoyed than all the better but it is ok if someone would rather read one written by an English Setter.
I know I am no poet and I sure as hell know it.
Write what makes you happy and forget the sounds of clapping.
