Poetry Is, The Fine Art of Life!
The Very Word - 'Poetry' Evokes The Deepest Emotions In The Human Soul.
Perhaps, upon hearing the word - or the subject of poetry brought up - our initial thoughts - are moved to the written word - as in a poem.
Poems are lovely and can be - on rare occasions - considered to be poetry.
What is Poetry?
I will share with you, my very personal feelings - as to the definition of the word 'poetry'.
Poetry - literally within itself - conveys the highest of the highest expressions of any of those, which we consider - the Fine Arts.
Poetry is what can be referred to - as those things - that are brought to life - through an individual life - and in a completed form or manifestation.
To Teach With Life, Is The Finest Of All Fine Art.

The Rules of Poetry...
The traditionalist would limit poetry in form - to that which is literary only - the written word only - as the expression of the human mind only - being considered 'poetry'.
Epitome - Apex - and even CLIMAX... are but a few words - to describe - the fine art of POETRY!
Therefore - to my soul - to be considered Poetry - is to Be that - which evokes these very raw and yet deeply beautiful emotions - from the depths the human soul.
Which can even bring us to weep - and most always will - as such intense responses in the unity of heart and soul - are the experience of POETRY - Experienced.

Poetry Is Intensely Personal - Others, like myself... grapple with the traditional definition of Poetry and What It Is?

From The Poet Must Come A Place Unto Understanding, Regardless of Difference... To Then Sow.
In literary poetry - one may speak or write, that commonality may be understood, as defined. This is likened unto the foundational place of which all forms of poetry are ultimately understood - but is limiting, if we were to stop with only the written word of this type of a Poet... therein, the true expression of poetry would then damn itself.
Poetry has eternal application to all who experience it - from the place in which they are currently standing in time.
It is powerful.
It draws from the well of the individual souls - the deepest desire to live life rich and well.
David Sylvian - The Poetry Of The Poet Is The Life... As It Is Given.
Poetry Is Disciplined and Untamed....
Poetry is rich in meaning. It is deeply symbolic, and jarring at times - if not in time.
Poetry has the ability to touch the opposition of our emotions, even revealing to self - that which was unknown and perhaps impossible to then move from... previously.
Poetry creates desires beyond our own known capabilities and ambitions - causing us to reach up and live larger than what we now experience.
Poetry is to yearn, for that which we fall short.
ROMANTIC POETRY THAT IS DEEPLY EXPERIENCED...
Poetry Cannot Be Defined By One - It Is Synergistic, Therefore Edifying.
If this is true - then where can it be determined that Poetry is of a single form?
That could not possibly be a correct understanding or acceptance of the many attempts over millenia to determine the what is - of poetry.
Poetry is the dance of life - and each of us, have our own moves... and yet, when 'Poetry' manifests itself in the world - it has the element of powerful magnetism, which lifts us higher.
Light cleaves to Light and it grows brighter and brighter... and can never be extinguished.
Light is LIFE, and its perpetuation in the journey.
Light is creation and Creator of Life.
Poetry is therefore Life!
