Poetry

poetry and poems i feel
give us an opportunity
to not only express ourselves
but also discover the good within
to project the image of a hope
that is tangible and possible....
giving readers the opportunity
to grasp that and to move forward...
if deep does call unto deep, then
a connection will somehow have been made....
all from bad will have been changed...
it begins with us from the inside out

So true and well said Frederick. Poetry is a langauage that rises above the simple meaning of the words intoned on the page. A well written poem is almost a religious experience, felt in the soul as well as the mind.10
Yes! Why didn't I say that. Prose can do it too but differently. I was just chatting to a young woman who had a row with her lover. She sent him a poem and he was won. The poem said it for her succinctly with heartfelt authority. She could have done it with a letter but the poem was better.
Great way to look at it Frederick. Very nice. Sincerely, Mary
