POETRY IS

 

Poetry is

A reflection of life

From the vantage point

Of being inside the mirror

    The only way to see.

    • Louis Gibbs

      At some point along the path, it becomes the only way it can be seen. Many thanks for your input, YA.

      Some poetry is. A great little 'un Louis.

      • Louis Gibbs

        Check the challenge I extended to Fred below, Michael, and join in if you are so inclined. I'd be interested in your thoughts on this in a poem!

        • Michael Edwards

          Following on from this I have now written a poem not realising that Fred had started one in fusions. Anyway I've just posted an extract in fusions and will post the full work at a later date.

          Very true. Good write.

          • Louis Gibbs

            Much appreciated, Goldie!

            A fine and true write Louis.

            • Louis Gibbs

              Thanks for the validation, 'O'.

              Very eloquent definition of poetry. I admire your penmanship, Louis.
              But (there is always a but) I do think that there are many more definitions that are equally valid. Be it as it may, your poem is excellent.

              • Louis Gibbs

                A challenge for you, Fred, should you accept it ... How about composing a poem regarding what else poetry is, or may be? In fact, I extend this challenge to all bards on the site! Could prove interesting.

                • FredPeyer

                  You're on Louis! The poem has to start with a first line of : Poetry is, and cannot have more than four lines (just like yours).
                  It might take a while since I am pretty busy right now, but I'll try to do it asap.

                      Poetry is

                      all Gods light

                      all Gods darkness

                      all Gods words.

                        Hey, I like it Kevin! Good entry ... Thanks for your input.

                        Fred had challenged me Louis, so I'll be doing a "Poetry Is" too. Great write here of your own.

                        • Louis Gibbs

                          I look forward to your entry, AP.

                          • Accidental Poet

                            I\'m looking forward to posting it. I contacted some others requesting them to join in too. Thanks for being the inspiration for it.

                            Love this. I’ll work on something 😊

                              Poetry is

                              Removing the mask

                              That you hide behind

                              Most of your days

                            • Poetic Dan

                              I've been pointed your direction
                              Glad I did as your mirror inspired
                              More of your wonderful wisdom
                              I shall give my own as you have

                              Thank you again for the idea!
