    Poetic language is way of expression (many times using metaphors and similes) bringing the inner meaning of something. 'I like her, her interaction brings happiness to me' is a factual statement. Poetically this can be 'she is like a morning sun bringing light into my life' or 'if my life is a song, she is the tune for that'. Hey, I am also writing poetry smile
    In another way, a good poem can touch the heart and bring out the inner feeling from the readers.

    Poetic Language is the totality of the characteristics of language as an instrument of artistic expression and an object of artistic perception; synonymous with artistic (literary) language. The term “poetic language” is sometimes applied to verse speech —that is, to literary language that follows the rules of verse. In a narrow sense, “poetic language” or “poetic speech” refers to the specific language of poetry before modern times (for example, ancient Icelandic and classical Persian poetry), which used a vocabulary, phraseology, and syntax that were rarely encountered in other kinds of speech.

    Poetic language is one which is full of expression and captures attention. It has power to express the emotions with which the poem has been written. Usually similies and metaphors are used but their are other means of making poem expressive too. In day to day life peole do not use poetic language because it has deeper meanings which need to be given time to understand.

    Poetic language is the language most often (but not exclusively) used in poetry. The key is that poetry is much more compressed than fiction (short stories or novels for instance). Since the language is denser in a poem, the word order is so much more significant. For instance, a poem and a short story may both attempt to convey the the beauty of nature, but the poem will do so in three stanzas while the short story will do it on three pages. To get the same point across, the poem has to rely on a number of techniques that will evoke emotions in a reader. These techniques are called poetic devices and may include rhyming, metaphors, similes, etc. Unlike fiction, poetry or poetic language does not have to follow grammatical rules, which allows readers to sort of unpack the poem and make meaning. Through the use of poetic language a poem is often more intense emotionally and also more open to interpretation.

    Figurative Language Examples

    1. Simile -- comparison using like or as

    ex.  The pretty flower is like a ray of sunshine in my garden.

    2.  Metaphor -- implied comparison

    ex.  The pretty flower is a ray of sunshine in my garden.

    3.  Personfication -- giving a human quality to a non-human thing

    ex.  The flower smiled its radiance over the rest of the garden.

    4.  Symbolism -- an object or person that represents some other quality.

    ex.  The beautiful flower represents the glory of nature.

    5.  Imagery -- language that appeals to any of the senses

    Ex. The vibrant smooth yellow petals emitted a beautiful perfume that attrached buzzy bees.

    Sound Devices

    1.  Assonance -- repetition of vowels sounds

    Ex. The flowers allowed me a glimpse into beauty.

    2.  Consonance -- repetition of consonant sounds within words

    ex.  The flowers call me to tell all their beauty.  (L's)

    3.  Alliteration -- repetition of sound at the start of words

    ex.  The flowers flowed freely down the vine.

    4.  internal rhyme -- rhyming words within a line

    ex.  The flowers call all of the bees.

    5.  end rhyme -- rhyming words at the end of at tleast 2 lines

    7.  meter / rhythm-- the rythmic pattern of syllables in a line -- look to mark the stressed and unstressed syllables and look for a pattern.  Shakespeare wrote primary in iambic pentatmater.  That means each even-numbered syllable was stressed (iambic) and there were 5 of those in a line. (pentameter)

    Good and evil are both aspects of the Divine.

    "Both Light and shadow, are the dance of Love." -Jalal Uddin Mohammed Rumi.

    An inner spiritual experience.

    "Drunk with Love, I reel as one intoxicated, with the celestial wine of Heaven"-Manatita.

    The words in quotation marks, are saying the same things as those not quoted. Poetic language uses a form which expresses words in an eloquent, sublime, witty or clever way, so as to have an enhanced impact on the mind or Spirit of the listener, to a greater effect.

    "Prose: Words in their best order.
    Poetry: The best words in their best order." - Colleridge.

    Language is made up of a big sea of words providing meaning for relationshipping.

    When the meaning is expressed in a distilled word form this then triggers in the reader personal associations to memories of feelings.

    The mind screen will ponder the consciousness realm and create novel word webs of imagination intensity

    Poetic language is a language that leaves a great impact and sensation on our psyche.

    A language that describes about a guy or a thing in such a way as to uplift our mind and soul ! It is a language that can turn normal phenomenon into an spectacular one.

    A language which soothes the mind, stimulates the nerves, agitate the body is a poetic language. A language , though importing different meanings to different guys, yet delighting them all.

    Poetic language is a magic created by words. It has the capacity to throw the readers into a trance. It may be an ordinary language ; yet not ordinary in its effect. It can be very divine too, as we find in some sacred texts.

    This is the language which defines the whole emotional rollercoster in just few lines or sentences even it is able to express things more on logical manner but in a subtle way that it touches the heart and open the nerve connection to mind.

    A poetic language must have rhythm and stanza length, this will allow you to fully express your feelings and emotions throughout your poem: Sometimes people find it easier to wright a short poem with one paragraph, but for others; poems can be explored by using stanza length and have as many as six paragraphs. Longer poems would be a good idea for exploring the poetic language of your poem.

    In my opinion "Poetic Language" is a Language of showing the feelings of heart and to explain the idea and to express a deep mean in a single word like ALONE. It has many meanings. It's up to you in which way you getting it.
