The Final Word
by Poet deVine
"Poetry on the Internet" will be a recurring feature in Digital Passions, after
all that's how we all met! We will bring you more interviews with Passions poets, more
reviews of their websites and more glimpses into the lives of our poets.
We have all heard that poetry is dead. But those that are saying that probably do not have
a computer and have not been surfing the web in the last five years. For here, on the
Internet, poetry is alive and well. Christopher's humorous article about finding millions
of sites dedicated to poetry is really true. If you type in "poetry"(spelled
correctly) you will find more sites dedicated to poetry than you can imagine.
My first foray onto the Internet consisted of posting poetry on the old MiningCo.com
forum. Wow! Instant gratification. Then I met Ron and submitted a poem for the
"Passions in Poetry" site. When it was accepted, I was ecstatic. For the first
time, someone other than my family and friends liked my poetry. I began to write more. I
created a website. Then another. Then updated the first one. I quickly became addicted to
graphics (another story) and then in March 1999, I joined the Passions Forum. And found
that there are thousands of poets in the world seeking the same thing, as I - a place to
find truth and beauty and tolerance. Passions in Poetry. My home.
In the next few months, you will get to know more of our Passionate Family. I know you
will like them, enjoy their work and look forward to reading more from them. If you have a
suggestion for an article, if there is a particular poet you would like to know more about
or if you want to submit an article or poem to Digital Passions, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org . I
look forward to hearing from you.
