They say poetry heals. Some people find poetry to be just a way of expression. Poetry could be a balm for a few or a way to calm their minds. For few it is introspection and it could be a way of life for somebody. Poetry brings truth to the fore.
Poets / writers / readers have different views about poetry at different points in time:
"One of the best-kept secrets in this technically oriented culture is that simply speaking truth heals."
--- Rachel Remen
"To write poetry is to be alive."
--- Rainer Maria Rilke
Robert Frost says “A poem begins in delight and ends in wisdom."
Have you ever experienced this wisdom?
What is poetry for you? Why do you write?
