“Poetry is the language of the Soul"


Blog Posted:4/21/2013 10:44:00 PM

                                                      What is Poetry?

“Poetry is not only dream and vision; it is the skeleton architecture of our lives.
It lays the foundations for a future of change, a bridge across our fears of what
has never been before.” (Audre Lorde)

    Love the quote "thought" and I think it's true because whenever it is written it is written within a space in time that encompasses all previous thought and the contemporary thought of the day and derived from that predictions of the future. So it is indeed in synopsis of the era it is written, a foundation to build on (if we heed the lessons of history) and a path to the future.

    " Poetry is the explosion of feelings that must exit by verbal or written images to let the swollen soul release what was building up inside. " ( Andrew Crisci )

    'Poetry is structured prose spoken aloud between the poet(author) and the listener to create a ' now aural experience' much like the visual 'now' experience when looking at an original piece of art'. B G STRAND 2013
