Poetry Is


Poetry is
Communion of imagination and reality
Careful choreography of a
Beautiful inspiring ballet of words

Poetry is
all Gods light
all Gods darkness
all Gods words.
Kevin Browne.

Poetry is
the revelation
of what isn't known,
but has already been revealed.
-Its Raskolnikov-

Poetry is
Of all things in the heart
When lyrical wheels turn
Pen upon page as written art

Poetry is
The structure of words
Feelings and emotions
That I can never seem to find

Poetry is
Truth revealed
When one connects
With their muse
-Louis Gibbs-

Poetry is
Moonlit woods
A shared adversary
Bound by secrets
WL Schuett

Poetry is
the words I write
essaying deepest inner thoughts
expressed with credibility.
Michael Edwards

Poetry is a way of life.
Poetry is fire and ice.
Poetry is freedom and chains.
Poetry is love...love is rain.

Poetry is,
The words from my soul leaving my body.
Poetry is,
Finding peace within my escape from reality.

Oh, poetry is many things
Writing what each one's mind and heart brings
Such as writes of a sherry or three
Or endless pork pies it may be!

    Thank you so much to everybody who contributed!!!
    Unfortunately, it seems that these fusion poems are limited to a maximum of 15 stanzas. I discussed with Goldfinch if maybe he could start another fusion poem called 'Poetry Is, II' to allow more members to participate. We'll see...
    This was a lot of fun, a lot of co-operation, and it all started with Louis Gibbs, so a big Mahalo goes out to him too!

  • Accidental Poet

    Yes Fred, this is a great collaboration of poets. Laura has started a "Poetry Is" fusion poem as she was too late to join in on this one. Great work everyone. And thank you to Louis and you Fred for bringing us all together like this.

  • ron parrish aka wordman

    poetry is
    a reflection of your
    heart and soul,
    transferred to words

  • lasergraph

    I think we have learned that poetry IS personal, it is to each something unique them that person.

    I'm So Sorry I Didn't Participate, I Haven't Been On Here In A Few Days, But This Is GREAT!!

  • Its Raskolnikov

    I truly enjoyed not just participating in this fusion poem, but seeing and reading the thoughts of so many truly poetically hearted writers. I think what we all learned from this is that beyond all else, poetry is people.
