Thoughts on Poetry
I LOVE being a writer, but I also love being a poet. Granted, there are a few more rules to learn and a few more experiments using words and such to try. Poetry, though, is a different art that is, what I think, easier to grasp onto in order to put feelings, experiences, expressions, and thoughts into an art many enjoy. Through the eyes of a poet, life is a gift or a curse depending on the poet. Love, heartache, joy, fear, and doubt are weaved into a blanket full of memories both good and bad. The poet has courage to stand for things that are wrong. The poet is also a storyteller so be careful when confronted with poets. They may tell a story about you. Ta-Ta!
