Poetry Is…

 

Poetry is emotions expressed through words.

Emotions of life experiences,

People,

Places,

Things.

Emotions of what we feel when we see the sun rise in Brazil.

Emotions of what we feel when you see a little girl hug her father.

Emotions of what we feel when your heart is broken.

Poetry is thoughts,

Feelings,

Emotions expressed through words that sound beautiful together.

Words that make you smile.

Words that make you cry.

Words that give you chills.

Poetry makes you feel.

  1. Poetry is the translation of feelings into words. It’s a form of pure expression. And speaking of expression, you did a nice job of expressing yourself through this poem!

    Great illuminating post! I have a writing blog at http://shelleddreams.wordpress.com/ Perhaps we can trade links and list each other on our blogrolls?
