Poetry

My Thoughts on Poetry…

Poetry is a living thing.  It evolves.  It evolves in the mind of each person who reads it. I write it and read it in my mind, but I don’t get to truly experience what I’ve written until I read it aloud, until I hear it ring in my ears, then, I have the poetry experience. And if it moves me to tears, then I know that it’s good and I want other people to read it, but they will have a totally different experience than me. They will read themselves into it. They will read their story into the poem to make it their experience and a completely different poem. It, then, becomes their poem.  When you write poetry, you gift poetry.  ~MRA
