Saya mendapat link bagus: Cecep Syamsul Hari’s Contributor Profile-Associated Content di  associatedcontent.com. Ketika saya buka, ada 100 lebih puisi dalam bahasa Inggris. Ada perasaan senang bisa membaca  dan mengenal puisi. Di sanalah saya belajar (gratis) menulis puisi, sekaligus belajar bahasa inggris :D. Bagi saya, Cecep Syamsul Hari, yang lahir di Bandung, 1 Mei 1967, adalah penulis puisi Indonesia yang produktif. Semangat dan mottonya “The life and death of a poet is intimately related to words. Words are spirit and miracles…” membuat saya iri dan bergairah untuk mencintai puisi dan berkarya. Terima kasih yang sebenar-benarnya buat Cecep Syamsul Hari, karya-karyamu memberi gagasan dan semangat bagi para pecinta sastra, khususnya puisi. Nah, bagi sobat yang juga ingin belajar menulis puisi gratis, atau sekedar menikmatinya bersama Cecep Syamsul Hari, silakan kunjungi karya-karyanya di Associated Content.
