Maybe this is not the right place to put this. If it is not, will a mod please move it?

Obviously some people love poetry. What is it about poetry that is so endearing to some people? (This is a serious question and please no one be hateful.)

The expression of ideas, emotions, imagination , private thoughts, desires and dreams. Yet even more than that as its hard to convey even in multiple poems written.
Some poets spend a lifetime attempting to convey it and die knowing they never truly succeeded--at least not to the high level that they desired!

My Australian friend and great poet Peter Duggan has in his 60+ years of writing poetry has written close to 6,000
poems, yet he does not think he has adequately presented enough to satisfy his desire to convey that!
I, myself --have in total went over the 2700 poems mark. Most were destroyed.
And I do not think I even came close. Hope that helps.. Tyr

Is it an art form of the written word? Otherwise, you could just write stuff down.

I know the poem you wrote for me was very special. I could never write anything like that.

Poetry is the highest art form...it has elements that deal with message , rhyme, rhythm , flow, heart and form..

^^^^ Thats my humble definition..-Tyr

Here is one of the official ones --


po·et·ry
ˈpōətrē/

"Walt Whitman's poetry"

"poetry and fire are nicely balanced in the music"

"the music department is housed in a building that is pure poetry"

This may explain more , and back my opinion that poetry is the highest art form.
I presented it in religion and ethics forum rather than here because it deals with politics -which are not to be discussed in this forum. link below -- please read there my friend.. --Tyr
