Genuine poetry can communicate before it is understood, the unknown healing all wounds of reason.

"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.

How to Write Poetry

Poetry makes an excellent conversation beginning with a lump in the throat then spilling out like liquid honey so sweet, savory, ending in the most natural wisdom,

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 listen to the children who are always on, we can learn as much from them as they us,

Poets need to befriend isolated thinkers, to enjoy their gift of gab, to recognize universal truths, listen to their intuitions, and welcome the muses that are their best fans,

Poets need to give credence to the “unseen” and to know that there is no coincidence, and be appreciative of free will,

Poets need to ride the winds with glee that blow through their minds, and to write those thoughts down before someone else does or before their forgotten all together,

Poets need to learn to appreciate the sun setting, a bird call, a quiet garden, a clear sky, and a creative effort with an unambiguous pen,

Genuine poetry can communicate before it is understood, the unknown healing all wounds of reason.

Nice thoughts, clearly expressed. But don't you think there is a place for ambiguity in poetry?

Interesting description of a poet. I particularly like the last line.
