I have several great bloggers that are AWESOME at writing poetry! I see it and think , WOW that is so great, so touching. I wonder if I should give it a try and I do, and realize again why I don’t write poetry 🙂 It just doesn’t flow for me, but I am so grateful to those who have the gift. I am reading Emily Dickinson’s poems right now and her poetry does stir the soul. I always loved Robert Frost poems, Walt Whitman and the list goes on, Elizabeth Barret Browning and can’t forget Shakespeare.
Here is my tribute to the famous poets of the past and the upcoming famous poets of the future, who I will be able to say, I knew them when they were just beginning! I blogged with them! My dear Ameena, Jodi, Little Learner, Mandibelle – this is for you 🙂
What is that sensation I am feeling, the tug of the heart strings!
From whence does it come?
Its from the words that are so artfully written in poetic form. The words may bring a smile or a tear, but they are words to hold dear.
The beauty of the words move the soul in the melodic rhythm of the words or at times haunting rhythm.
The cadence of the poem whether its Haiku or something new, just touches the soul in a different way.
I love reading novels, I love reading posts and short stories, but poetry also has a magic of its own.
These special people have learned the art of creating it
and I have learned the art of enjoying it.
Keep up the magic my friends!
