The Poetic Debate

Poetry is never unexplained but misunderstood quite often. Where poetry is birthed from and the circumstances it narrates can be unrelatable.

A keen poet is inspired by unusual incidents, experiences, unsaid feelings, silence, chatter, anger, sadness, happiness, and many other nuances of life discovered on compassionately looking and listening to myriad reflections.

Poets are travelers through ages; continuity of ceaseless seeking and learning. It’s an uninterrupted communication with the world, as it speaks of changes.

Changes of such magnitude are either overlooked or incomprehensible. Being an ear to such changes he can listen to so many stories.

A poet usually never explains his poetry, but wraps them in mysterious and cryptic metaphors.

The spirit of poetry is mystical! The reader should have literary inclination to unravel as much as possible. Poetry is generous when a reader shows interest along with perceptiveness.

Poetry is more than Art. A poet embraces the entire dimension of existence through poetry. Reading poetry is a recitation in silence; it’s the reverberation that wakes up the senses.

Poetry takes time to connect with the soul for it is a mysteriously serious reflection of life. Once you connect with poetry, you will find the cadence of life. Poetic truth can open new vistas of existence!
