“I would define, in brief, the poetry of words as the rhythmical creation of Beauty.”
-Edgar Allen Poe-
Here’s an excerpt from the Scope and Trajectory section for Poetry inside The Emotional Advantage (First Edition) Volume One (Adult Version). I’m publishing 30 original poems inside the book. Thank you for your support!
“Poetry is an imaginary corridor one walks through. There are no walls to confine definition and no ceiling to entrap meaning. The words just arrive with no conviction to become “correct”, but only “fitting”. One creates their own rules of engagement and interpretation. A delicate balance of rhyming can either solidify meaning or destroy it. Time holds no boundaries between the lines as standards of understanding remain malleable. While there is no wrong way to write or read poetry, there is a “right” way to begin, and that is with emotion and curiosity leading the way.”
