Poetry is art
like the sound of a wolf howling in a darkened night
it can be both scary and hypnotizing
It can bring shivers up your spine, and give you a sense of peace
poetry is in constant motion....never in your brain does it sit in silence
poetry is not relaxing, It is a race to find the end, the meaning.....
Poetry is challenging, in both prose, and moral compass
It causes one to question, to evaluate inward, as opposed to judging outward.
Poetry is not the same as songwriting as some might think
singing something, while also has hidden meanings, and moral wars that rage; combines words with music with theory, rhythm, and the ability to actually sing it. It is unique and something I debate with and argue with on a daily basis.
Now classical music, that is different and can bring all sorts of images to the mind, it can create a story based on rhythm, instrumentation, tempo, solos and cymbal crashes. or even the slighted dining of a single bell. It can bring us to inspiring places such as the olympics, and horrible places such as Dresden.
Poetry is art, and lyrically can be used in songs and rap sometimes
Music is art and can be used to enhance the words and rhyme scheme of poetry, but they are two separate forms of the unique and wonderful world of art.
I am thankful for my music teachers, and my english teachers for encouraging me in both these endeavors.
