What is poetry

Poetry is music Just words spoken and not sang Picture the melody Imagine the beat You can even dance off rhythm but be confident when you speak Words reveal rhythmically your perception of creativity Poetry is a place where words dance to thoughts about the day And the paper is where they rest until the slam at the cafe Then like a lion it comes in and overpowers the beat Placing periods in places where they shouldn't be Betraying verbs and. cheating on metaphors with euphamisms and irony Poetry is emotion and dance and freedom It's a happy place for the mind and also a spirtual medium Poetry is art. It's what you want it to be So just write write write about just about anything. It doesn't have to rhyme....all the time If you don't want it to As long as it comes from the heart No one can correct you. So Write. POEMS ABOUT POETRY CONTEST January 8, 2013

This is so true HB, each verse holds something worth mentioning so I'll just say I am loving it. One love. Joy Wells
