Poetry is... Art

Poetry is... Art by Amy Swanson Poetry comes in all shapes sizes colors surprises varieties lengths flavors styles About all kinds of feelings thoughts emotions moods people foods societies animals nature It can be long short rhyme prose haiku quatrain free verse narrative sonnet footle senryu tanka epulaeryu .... and so many more-! Poetry's authors are from everywhere all ethnicities women men girls boys young old adults kids tall short thin heavy average brunette redhead blonde raven-haired white-haired gray-haired or even no-haired Poetry is abstract or concrete playful or serious light-hearted or strongly stated. It is about anything everything nothing and in-between. It is word art from the heart. It can make you happy sad thoughtful mad excited or even goo-goo eyed! Poetry ... just is. There is only one thing Poetry is not ... cookie-cutter same-old-all-the-time-heard-it-all-before cookie-cutter. Each verse as unique as the heart that wrote it Each line as unique as the soul that felt it. And so simply said: Poetry is... art.
