What is Poetry?Jul 17, 2022
Poetry is defined as four things:
- Metrical writing
- Writing that formulates a concentrated imaginative awareness of experience in language chosen and arranged to create a specific spiritual, intellectual, or emotional response through meaning, sound, or rhythm
- Something likened to poetry, especially in beauty of expression
- Poetic quality or aspect
The reason Poetry is defined in such loose terms is because its Elastic Nature, akin to the Wave Function, allows any Individual to express herself using a different reflective Nature, separate and apart from all that came before.
It is this opportunity that characterizes the creative aspect of Poetry and allows certain individuals to create original work rather than copy or rehash previous Patterns of Expression.
