I feel that poetry is about expression. It is about making art. And if it is about anything else, it is about beauty. It’s not necessarily the work of academics and something to be learned in a classroom. All too often, poetry is regarded this way. As something to be done and understood in an academic sense. But I feel it is an expression of the poet. In other words, something just done, not necessarily done “the right way.” There IS no right way. It is unfortunate that too many people view poetry like this. I think anyone can write poetry because anyone can express. Anyone can think, feel, imagine and more. Once again, poetry is an expression of the poet.
