To Be A Poet

by wolfinwindow

To be a poet, is to live poetry.
You must see with your ears,
feel with your eyes, grasp emotion
with your nose and show with your hands
and your heart and your deepest mind what
you have captured.

To be a poet is to celebrate every situation
for food, for thought, A completed idea or an
ambient wave, can be built upon. By you or by
someone with whom you have shared. The
poet's and the same idea and you have ten different
thought patterns.

Poetry is letting someone else into the deepest
recesses of your mind. It opens paths to be followed,
ideas to find. A poet is one who tries again and again
to make themselves heard, through their words.
A poet is the Bard of their domain, how ever large it
it may be.

I am proud to be a Poet.

You wrote the best words to
describe how to be a Poet.

Especially
"To be a poet, is to live poetry.
You must see with your ears,
feel with your eyes, grasp emotion
with your nose and show with your hands
and your heart and your deepest mind what
you have captured."

and

"Poetry is letting someone else into the deepest
recesses of your mind. It opens paths to be followed,
ideas to find. A poet is one who tries again and again
to make themselves heard, through their words.
A poet is the Bard of their domain, how ever large it
it may be."

Just like you,
I'm proud to be a
Poet.
Because Poetry is
the best way I could express
myself and others. Where I could
paint pictures and tell stories of
Love, Life, Happiness, Pain,
and Sadness.
We could put our State of Mind
in Poetry in anyway.

Beautiful Poem.
