I write poetry in my spare time and many people tell me that they like my shorter poems and when I ask about the long poems they say they havent read them. So I want to learn from you guys do you like long or short poems?

Any, as long as they stir the heart, mind and soul.

I would say shorter poem, though not necessarily short poems are my favourite. Long poetic works can drag on somewhat and I tend to lose interest if I feel I am never getting nearer the end. In terms of the poetry I write, the length of the piece would depend on what I was describing and how concisely I could convey the message.

I like short poems much more. As it is not easy to express the emotions in short words. It can be brief but touching. So it is much more difficult than long poems in my opinion. I love China

I prefer short poems, as I really don't have interest in reading poems that I want them to be short. On the other hand, I really admire people who writes one, because it is every hard for me to write one. :D
