What is Poetry?

Poetry is a form of literature that uses aesthetic and rhythmic qualities of language—such as phonesthetics, sound symbolism, and metre—to evoke meanings in addition to, or in place of, the prosaic ostensible meaning.  By Definition

However, poetry for me is therapeutic and cathartic. It has been my saving grace to tell a story, a sentiment, or describe a smile. It is a dance between words each vying for the better position in a sentence or phrase. Poetry makes a simple sentence sound sexy, it makes a silly word smooth. The placement of words paint the soul and gives it infinite possibilities of what can become a reality.

Poetry is this melodic party that makes your heart beat fast, makes you smile when no one is around and it reminds us of the sheer awesomeness of words. Poetry has a rhythm upon its delivery that makes you laugh, love, cry, and or even mad. I invite you to journey with me through the nuisances of my poetic flow.
