Celebrating National Poetry Month #10: Poetry Is

Poetry Is…

A way of seeing

A way of feeling

A way of sharing.

Poetry is…

Words arranged based on sound,

Words arranged based on shape,

Or words arranged based on length.

Poetry is…

Freeing what fills the heart,

Stretching what fills the mind,

Connecting what spills on the page.

  1. I love "stretching what fills the mind." Perfect! Off to do a little mind stretching in my own journal. Thanks.


I always enjoy reading comments!
