    1. Hi Keisha, thanks for making a regular contribution to our blog.
      Try putting a fragment and segment in your poems, that is, avoid one sentence for whole poem. It should break into two parts. See mine below.

    2. Keisha you don't have to write in lines of 5/7/5 syllables, as in English writing poets don't do that.
