I would say it is an art. An art is something that cannot be objectively evaluated.
With all art, there are different levels of skill. And, since the reaction to art is subjective, there will be great differences in opinion about an artist's (poet's) work. A consensus or not will determine fame and fortune.
I consider writing Poems to be an Art because there is an element of creativity in it.
Poems can be used to release emotions or can be even be written for people, but it's the "putting it together" that brings about the Art.
Yes because is an expression from the soul. Art is basically a soul screaming somenthing in an unique way. Trought art...
Yes, writing poems is a real art. It is not simply 'emotions gushing out'. But it is skill and craftsmanship with words.
The great drawback with most poetry today is that it is simply the pouring out of feelings in a maudlin and reckless way. The poet is a 'wordsmith' who carefully chooses his words to master his emotions and transmute them to a higher level. There has to be control and (as I said) craftsmanship.
There is a creative art to writing poems. You can either write prose or rhyme. I try to always write my poems from my heart. Writing is a way to release our emotions as well.
Of Course It Is...! When done with the best of your abilities and directed at an idea that you want to portray (whether the idea is made clear or hidden with in your own personal meaning). A Poem can say things with great imagination and with great attention-getting abilities...i.e. Art! In its purest sense.
Perhaps Poetry is even better then most media forms that are out there today. It only depends on how interested the person is in the Poetry that they read. Art is where you find it. Artist seek to express their ideas...in the form of their own choosing. Some use plaster of paris and a kiln, some carve wood and stone, some use colors on canvas, and some use words! Hooray...for the Artist who expresses their ideas in any media form!

Wesleycox has inspired me to share some of my poetry on the forums, not to mention create more Hubs that continue my series on personal experience love stories with poems. On one of his threads he expressed some strong negative emotions in a good poem, and someone thought it was about his...

How does one edit poetry?I have found myself I a position where I need to write a poem. I used to write poetry when I was in highschool (the horrendously bad stuff, mind you), and was of the very stuff opinion that a poem must be written when the emotion grips you and must not be touched after....

I think many of you will agree with me when I say that poems should be well-crafted and not random scribbles. Good poetry has depth and meaning, and is a joy to read and listen to. Poems should be taut and compact, with 'the right words in the right places'. After all, a poem is not mere gushing...

I'm interested in poetic process. I personally believe the real writing comes in the editing stage and that all first drafts, without exception, are abysmal. As a result, I edit and rewrite a piece multiple times over days and sometimes weeks before I deem a poem acceptable for...
