I grew up surrounded with Poetry, and I loved it!
It opens up the doors to a world of Harmony, since
It is the vehicle for immortal things par excellence.
Poetry seizes a particular moment and frames it,
Thus converting it into a lifetime!
Poetry allows you to share your personal
Experience with others! To communicate
Your feelings and impressions to the world at large!
Poetry conveys each and every feeling known to mankind:
Joy, despair, hope, bitterness, and peace of mind...
Poetry expresses every sight and sound worth recording:
Poetry captures a momentum on the wings of butterflies,
Dewdrops on the petals of roses, waves splashing in the sea,
The sky turning pink at dawn, and the golden tint of a sunset.
Yes! Poetry is the language of Beauty, Happiness,
Grief, Guilt, and Fear! It is indeed a universal language!
