“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.
The more we Feel it is on the Pulse, the Breathing of the Soul – the more Poetic.
Nicholas Roe writes of Keats’ approach to poetry: “in its purpose for accommodating humanity to the world, Keats [believed] that poetry offered a mode of intervention amid ‘the agonies, the strife / Of human hearts’.”*
Such poetry is Poetic: the Pulse of his Heart to ours.
