“Poetry and Deep Creativity”

Our word poetic is from the Greek poein, to create.

Poetry is so much more than words on a page. For instance, dancing can be Seen as poetic, and music – all arts, and all of life.

It depends on how we feel it was created – from how Deeply within. If from the Soul, then whatever its form, it will be thought – Known – to be Poetic.
