How to Write and Read Poetry
Write and Read Poetry
“The aesthetic properties of art are, in and of themselves, a form of language.
Art speaks in a way that is non-verbal, emanating from our heARTs and connecting us first to ourselves, and then to others.”
~ Vista View Mag
To be a poet, you need to know when to listen and when not, as well as begin every day with a moment of silence, during the day listening to the children who are always on, we can learn as much from them as they from us.
Poets need to befriend isolated thinkers, enjoy their gift of gab, recognize universal truths, listen to their intuitions, and welcome the muses that are their best fans.
Poets need to give credence to the “unseen” to know that there is no coincidence and be appreciative of free will.
Genuine poetry can communicate before it is understood, the unknown healing all wounds of reason.
