What is Poetry? (Challenge)

by Sandy M. Humphrey

Poetry is the collaboration
of element and matter,
spirituality and humanity
movement and words coming together in life's dance


Author's Note: Glenn Currier's "What is Poetry?" sparks a two part challenge. I am game. smh

Oh great! I am glad you bring up spirituality because there is something about poetry - when I really take the time - that opens up my spiritual pathways. Often, when I get there, I breath a sigh as if to say... oh yeah - there it is.

Excellent analogy; one for the text books in my humble opinion. A great opening poem also to be read before any and all poetry workshops.

I like what you have included in your "list" and love the ending of "life's dance". Thanks!
