this fractured landscape broken shards jut through the dry cracked terrain reaching for the sky obscured by thick sanguine roiling clouds i wander through finding negligible signs of life i am unsure of how to encourage that which i do not cognize this milieu will submit and become vivacious wholesome and salubrious in good time the work cogitation and reflection required to heal is my onus

    Potent is the word for your poem. I felt the command of the speaker's thoughts. I believe the absence of capitalization bespeaks unwritable sentiments, so to speak. Good job.
    Cook, my standard poetry disclaimer: I'm rather old fashioned when it comes to poetry: I actually favor Poe, Marvel, Coleridge, Wilde, and the Roberts Frost and Service, to give you some idea. To me, even free verse should have a flow and rhythm when read aloud to distinguish it from spoken prose. When reading a poem, you should almost hear the music that would make it a song. That said, this didn't seem like a poem but a inner conversation transcribed. I don't see the purpose in omitting punctuation and capitalization, but that seems to have become a sign saying, "This is poetry," when that wouldn't otherwise be obvious. The last stanza seemed singularly unpoetic.

    You should probably take my negative comments as an indication that you have a good modern poem.
    Interesting, and different presentation. I enjoyed it. Nice job.
    I admit, i struggled reading this. Maybe it's just our tendency to read more left to right than vertically? I just couldn't get over the difficulty and i lost track of the topic.
    But thank you for sharing.
