Words wrapped around dreams…

What is poetry?? This is akin to asking โ€œwhat is happiness?โ€ 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

A note

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.

  1. In total agreement here ๐Ÿ˜€ I love poetry, but its more about conveying that which can’t be conveyed by mere words, sometimes the verse speaks louder than anything else!

  2. absolutely beautiful and unique. Have quoted it in a post with all references and will thank the author in person, as it were. Thanks for sharing, David.
