I'm not sure I qualify as a new poet any longer. I know I have relatively little experience, but a seemingly huge output. I am honored to have friends(fans) enjoy my offerings, and some few who ask My advice.
the best off the top of my head advice I can give is USE SPELLCHECK. and use the proper form of the word that is a homonym  Use Maid instead of Made if speaking of a young lady. Use Soul instead of sole if speaking of the spiritual center of a person. Remember your words once published will always be attached to your name. Be proud of your calling and the product you put out.

I am a grand father 19 times over (20 and 21 are cooking right now). I am surprised at the number of teens that follow me. and I am honored. 
Thank you for your consideration.

"I decided that it was not wisdom that enabled [poets] to write their poetry, but a kind of instinct or inspiration, such as you find in seers and prophets who deliver all their sublime messages without knowing in the least what they mean."  Socrates

RichardHigley commented on Super Moon

Can he/she, who is closest to our heart and mind, see the same celestia landmark that we see right now? Is this evidence of another connection to bind us closer even at distance of time and space. I often look at her ever changing constant face and hope my love is looking at her too.  Very nice Slone. V
