On Poetry


Poetry has its own language and structure, Culture
Poetry has its own craft and method to capture the taste, Art
Poetry has its own medium of inspiration from the spiritual world, Religion
Poetry has its own manner of seeking wisdom both from natural and supernatural, Philosophy
Poetry has its own object to shape both evolution and revolution, History
Poetry has its own laboratory to amend feelings and emotions, Psychology
Poetry has its own system: theory and praxis; facts and fiction to convey a message, Science
Poetry has its own discipline to stimulate the various interests, Way of Life

Finally Poetry is life itself full of stories to share:

secrets to reveal,

mysteries to unfold,

vision to interpret,

mission to fulfill before the Poet enters the door of death

Poetry is ancient and noble craft.
