Fascinating thread.

I offer my simple, humble opinion.

Poetry is words on steroids.

Poetry is the artistry of words.

Poetry articulates meaning.

Poetry is an art form, which also forms art.     (Concrete, etc.)


             Poetry
         Word Artistry
Touching, moving, depicting
    The rendering of words
            Creation

I just found this site and enjoyed reading through it. I think it is a very good topic for discussion.

thatollie, I used to think you were a lovely person, but even as a joke, that comment is offensive.

"You do not need to leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and listen. Do not even listen, simply wait, be quiet still and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked, it has no choice, it will roll in ecstasy at your feet." - Kafka

Ollie was offensive?
