Question: For all you poetry experts out there, is this a poem!?
Now i know it doesnt rhyme or have rythmical style, but still, would you consiter this to be a poem!?

The sun rose upon the rolling fields,
lighting the snow bitten forest!.
White powder descended from the heavens,
tapping my face as it fell to the ground!.

A sudden awareness of beauty filled my mind
as I took a step back to appreciate the wonders!.
With the wind howling around me,
I could barely make out a faint shimmering in a tree!.

It awoke my mind,
I suddenly had something I must do!.
I had to see this shinning beacon,
this diamond of the cold!.

I walked through the white snow
as it fought to chill me!.
Still, I ventured on!.

I walked onto a frozen river,
almost plunging in as it couldn’t hold my weight!.
Still, I ventured on!.

I walked through the bare trees,
the deserted forest!.
Still, I ventured on!.

As I came nearer and nearer to the spectacle,
my heart began to race!.
What was this shinning thing!?
The closer I came, the brighter is shone!.

Ten feet, eight feet, six feet,
I was there!.
I reached into tree,
towards the light!.

I grappled for the object, pulling it near me!.
As my eyes looked upon my treasure, they filled with tears!.
Not from happiness, no!.
From anger!. From resentment!. From sadness!.
As I looked upon the broken bottle in my hand,
I thought of what Earth once was!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Poems don't need have to rhyme or have any sort of rhythm!. Blank verse is when they have a set rhythm but no rhyme and free verse is when they don't have rhythm or rhyme at all!. Most modern poems are written without rhyme!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

I am by no means a "poetry expert", but I think almost anything (particularly with stanzas, but not restricted to) that you want to consider a poem is a poem!.

That is!.!.!.if you are the author!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
