Does poetry really matter online
Poetry makes me feel like this, so free to fly so high mentally
The importance is real
Writing online today is something of a true gift for most of us who love to play around with words. People have so many options to choose from in terms of selecting a writing style of choice, and definitely one that suits their fancy. There's been a huge debate for many years as to the relevance of certain styles of writing as opposed to others on the world wide web. For some odd reason many people may think that poetry for instance isn't truly worth the time to either read, to look up as a online web surfer, or to give any real credit too. (Its to each ones own, and there's a definite place for poetry on the web today, just look around)
Those people who have such a obvious one track minded view of such a writing style are so wrong, and there's many ways to prove such a theory of sorts.
For starters, poets feel much more freer to express themselves in such a articulate manor, and it drives them to open up Pandora's Box a great deal as well within their once upon a time closed mindsets. This is very important a thing, and mainly due to the fact that many other writing styles may be a very lonely road for the average writer, and may hold a great deal of literary road blocks.
Defender of poetic freedoms
I myself as a poet, am a active defender of this coveted realm for creative writers, and I feel like a knight in shining armor, where I run off into tangents at times, even. This way of mentally detaching from the real world through creative word powers is so essential for me. I love doing such a thing, and even if I also enjoy writing prose a great deal as well.
For me writing on the Internet today isn't looked upon as a job or career though, and so I have no clocking in station or alarm bells telling me that the work day has ended (Maybe when my wife gets home, but that is all). This is the beauty of online writing, and so poetry is my outlet as well as inlet to let off proverbial steam of all sorts I may have built up over the centuries.
Letting out the built up emotions, those things that tend to stress us all in dealing with our struggles on this planet, comes to mind a great deal when writing poetry, and its so easy to unleash the fiery angers, tears of joy, sadness, inspirational vocabulary to stir up the humors and the likes into such a sensational palette of self expressiveness.
Poetry social network on the rise
You must think like a poet to be one
Thinking along the lines of that of a poet also helps me to free my mind at all times, even though I am the type who relates to all things from a long distance, and I also choose to meditate a great deal of the time in the day or evening. Writing in poetic verse is definitely something of a feeling like no other, because when the words start flowing, somehow its like a marriage with your inward self, and your able to bring out the invisible and unspeakable feelings that may have crept into internal corridors of the heart. Letting it all come out is like a sigh of relief and this is also the reason why I love this subject so much.
So to be able to express it all online is very important, it has nothing to do at all with receiving any monetary value, The spirit cannot be feed with gold coins, or silver dollars nor can the heart.
There are well defined styles of poetry writing, but true poets all know whom they are, and breath their words into being, because its their very life blood and from out of their true to life experiences. One doesn't need to be told how to walk after they've learned to crawl, and once a poet always a poet. The wisest in the bunch may tend to be the most silent, but when it comes time to show and prove, they're levels of creativity shall stand for itself and with a single poem, or with a flurry of awesome poems. This is where being online as a poet and feeling the privilege and freedom of voicing creativity becomes a true pleasure for sure.
Getting lost in our thoughts is our goals sometimes
These sorts of thought patterns being conjectured up into action on the internet today may definitely be unrealistic at times, but the truth is that poetry is a right thing to do as a author of the web today, and one who looks to attract an audience who seeks just that, true poetic freedom.
Using words in poetic forms shows that such a writer has diversity, showmanship, style, and also can enhance the way they shall eventually see things in their own lives as well. Poetry for the most part motivates the unmotivated, and challenges minds to think differently, sometimes placing a much more fourth going attitude as opposed to being confined into a one way of doing things.
Poets express a great deal, here's to all those who dare to take out their worded swords and pen it all down with true heart, with passion, and with the willingness to move minds today. There's is no other art in the world that can do what poets do for their readers, we are a breed that's been cut out from a finer cloth of paper like material for sure.
