What is poetry?? This is akin to asking “what is happiness?” Poetry is one soul speaking to the universe and hoping that the stars hear. Poetry is emotion woven in words. Poetry is words wrapped around dreams. Poetry is the vulgar made presentable and the presentable made profane. Poetry is an individual definition influenced by experience, observation and temperament. Or it is just random words in hopes that another can make sense of them.–Murisopsis, A Different Perspective
For this post, I was going to compile a list of quotes around a particular theme, as I am wont to do, but Muri’s quote, above, which she casually left as a comment on my blog, simply blew me away; and I must share it with you.
