There are no word count limitations for a poem.

750 words grrrrr
seriously the shorter the better, do yourself a favour, don't submit more than two a day, even better just one, hopefully feedback may help with the next one.
check out the landscape over in new poems, poems and comments
best of luck

Thanks so much for your advice. I'm a newbie and a better writer (I hope) than a techie.

slap one over here in a thread, for starters, if you are open to suggestions. Some times you will get over 100 years of experience to help. Remember the poem exists apart from you. If you get conflicting advise, even better, what works for you.
Gotta go.

Lit stories (not poems) must be a minimum of 750 words.

What I remember, anyway.
