Poetry is easier than prose, she'd said and I had smiled and nodded wihout really thinking about it, letting it pass on by. But now that I think about it I suppose it depends. Some poetry is not easy to write. Some of it is amazin and would not be the same if it was a piece of prose. But, I can also see how writing prose is more difficult, one has to connect the ideas and make the sentences fuller and more complete. You can't just leave the reader(listener) to fill in your blanks. And so, it makes writing good prose difficult. I can not say if I like poetry more than prose. They are just different. I used to write quite a bit of poetry but that could be because my thought pattern was kind of jumpy and made it difficult to express it as prose. But I have moved from poetry to short texts.. opinions and flows of consciousness(or whatever you call those things)
