Can I Be A Poet On Wikinut Too?

I have always envied the writers of poetry. There are common misunderstandings about what poetry is. There are Simple ways to find out if what you are writing is poetry.
It Makes a difference to me when I understand why sharing my emotional feeling is important. Knowing what I am trying to accomplish shows me a path to where I am going. To me poetry brings chaotic bits and pieces together to form beauty through understanding.

Me A Poet ?

There was good reason in my mind for thinking this way.
For the longest time I had this idea in my head that poets were angelic people with a super natural ability of some kind.
All the poetry that had been put in front of me by teachers while in school had made a clouded impression on me.
You know when I am truthful with myself, I most likely created the clouds myself by not paying attention to their impression.
Concentrating on other things like building a tree fort, or spitting farther then the rest of the guys, just seamed to be important.

Is It Possible ?

To answer this question I looked at the definitions.
Poet- a person who writes poems.
Poem- a piece of writing having rhythm and, often, rhyme, usually in language that shows more imagination and deep feeling than ordinary speech.
Next I started reading poetry.
There are published poets of all ages, all over the world, in every walk of life.
They just want, to make music, with their words.
So I guess this serge of energy, that has been building inside, and wanting to get out,
is possible for anyone, who applies themselves.

Why Is Poetry Important ?

I found the answer by reading; for example - - - cnwriter - - - Shaunak Vats - - - Terry Trainor - - - Tanker mone - - - Delicia Powers - - - Buz - - - Stella Mitchell - - - Md Rezaul Karim - - - Noreen Ann Jenkins - - - All under POETRY on wikinut.
Fortunately there is a lot more for me to read and, I have started making my own music with words.
Why not give it a try and, become part of another branch on the wikinut Poetree.

You are already a poet James.
I am not sure if I understand even the basics of poetry but I find those poems beautiful which help conjure a picture and which triggers my imagination. More with less. Thanks for the share.

A wonderful music teacher I recall from my youth used to always say: All you have to do to be a musician, is pick up an instrument and play it--or even simply sing. :)
