..what is poetry……

poetry is not merely the words we put to paper

but the vision in which we perceive and experience the world..

the poet does not see the world but feels it..

in his heart…in his soul….

the poet sees beyond what the human eye can see….

the poet sees the truth behind the seeming illusion……

    I always wanted to be a poetry writer. I’m the absolute worst at it, but I do love to read it!

    Catherine,

    I bet you could write some darn good poetry…poetry is just your feelings put onto paper in a pretty way, even the ugly stuff…..

    Nice article…I loved the line ‘the poet sees the truth behind the seeming illusion..’
    I remember Plato’s views on poetry in his seminal work ‘Republic’. He had wanted to ban poets from the constituency because he believed that poetry had the ability to cause revolution…such is the strength of poetry.

      Yes, I beleive it is art that evolves and moves society forward. We are the ones who think and feel outside the norms of society and yes that could cause a revolution couldn’t it?

      Thank you for stopping by the blog and for the commentary much appreciated.

ESTUDIO DE UN DIARIO

Del griego moderno ημερολόγιο (imerológio) "diario o calendario", a su vez de ημέρα (iméra) "día u horas de sol" y λόγια (lógia), "palabras o estudio". En fin, estudio del diario: de los días, de los años, del tiempo, de la vida; en forma de palabras.
