www.poetrypoems/meloomelissaahowells This is our on-line community. An open invitation to you, the reader/writer to actively participate in an open interchange of ideas and impressions. Hopefully, together, we can all become innovators. I write exactly what I think and feel . I make no apologies for this or mistakes  If you were to put your fingers on my pulse, you'd find poetry.  From time time I post my original watercolors here as the "wallpaper."  Ghuey,  the long toothed lion of my heart (our cat) and my best friend and love B have helped me to name my pictures over time. I "title"my pictures in much the same way as I write my poetry...with my heart.


I know there are those who nit-pick about spelling and punctuation. It is important, but not that important and I feel, overall, that it doesn't reflect on the content of the poem nor the character of the writer. In a workshop which I attended, meaning was emphasized over spelling and punctuation. Poor spelling and punctuation cannot ruin a poem for me. I am more interested in the message and intent of the writer.  I often purposely use mispellings and slang and even invent words to write my poetry. Of course there are always those who will focus on that and not much else. I am more interested in the brave and inventive writer who expresses themselves and their message honestly, bravely and truly from the heart. Legal Copyright for all works/poetry by this Author/Writer Melissa A Howells and for this site title Meloo Straight From Her Tilt-a-World A cherished friend here told me my nickname...Meloo, one which my maternal Grandpapa gave me...is Migaloo for whale. I like that.
