The poet, sometimes through cognition, which is like a gift, is able to create something beautiful. From Shakespeare to Milton to Wordsworth. The list is endless. To be able to see things through the eye of a poet, is a wondrous thing.
Poetry uses figurative expressions to transmit ideas, awake feelings, and inspire the imagination, which connect the individual mind and heart to universality.
It is also use to create a deeper meaning of life/the world. Its fragrance is intoxicating.
Poetic beauty is like the marigold, rose, daisy, and jasmine. A poet employ beautiful imagery, for the effective use of metaphorical language.
E.E Cummings’ “I Carry Your Heart With Me” is a good one. It captured the “beautiful” as regards poetry.
Poetry is beautiful, in the sense that it uses simple words, to represent other meanings in real life. It can be a single phrase or a whole poem. The beauty in the play of sound in words, in some poems, is realized, when you read the poems out aloud.
Poetry is like the unspoken words you wished to have said all along. It is the shedding of tears, the sound of laughter, the healing of wounds.
Poems don’t need to rhyme.
Rhyming is no guarantee of beauty. And I believe every poem is unique.
To some, poetry is simply just words on a paper; another redundant stuff. To others, poetry is the truth they seek. To me, poetry is life personified.
