I'm a proponent of "less is more," especially when it comes to poetry. My preference is haiku or other short forms. I came across a simple poem of six lines that is packed with significance, or, is simply the presentation of a pretty scene. It's all in how you choose to look at it!
The Same Goose Moon

then (for a god's sake)
one leaf whirled
across the face
of the big October moon.
