What is poetry?
Poetry is any form of deep artistic expression that has a rhythmic flow, spiritually driven, and is the epitome of an innovative language. It can come in the form of a traditionally written poem, song, dance, painting, sculpture, spoken words, and much more! Your poetry can also be the way in which you are motivated to rise above adverse circumstances and in other words your life can be poetry. For example you may have a friend, family member, music, career, dance, exercise, or God that motivates you to stand up stronger and this occurrence can be considered poetry.
The concept of poetry is one of the oldest forms of communications and many people would agree that it is the language in which the Holy Bible was written. The word poetry was inspired by the term poiesis which is the greek term for poetry and essentially means to create or make.
