Poetry is born when the heart and intellect meet and converse and reflect together.
Poetry is a moment of awareness, a moment of realisation, an insight into being alive and experiencing with the heart; therefore poetry is heartfelt. The poet's sensitivities are heightened towards the occurrence and the experience.
Poetry is inspirational, and also powerful due to the wisdom it carries within its imagery, mood, ethos and pathos.
Poetry is all this, and much more.
Writing poetry is as much a spiritually elevating experience as reading poetry.
To read poetry is to peep into a universally experienced humane moment of life once more, from a different angle and a different point of view-and absorbing the poet's refreshing way of looking at the world.
Reading poetry is therefore at once engaging, elevating, and an intellectual and emotional experience.
