poetic story-telling
Do you like writing or have you ever written poetry? What does poetry do to its poets and readers? And do you think writing poetry is important especially for the writers of prose or fiction: Why?

I do like writing poetry. In fact, I spend most of my time on writing.com writing poetry. I enjoy it because it’s so condensed. In a poem, every word counts, every phrase should contribute to a feeling or an idea that is the center of the poem. As a reader, poetry makes me think and feel, which is important. We need sometimes to have our minds reopened to a new idea of what is important, what is real.

I do believe that writing poetry is especially important for writers of prose and fiction because it makes us think about concision. A story needs poetry in description and it needs to be concise and clear so that readers can be led into the feeling of it. I do think that the opposite is also true. A poet masters their craft by writing, and that writing can and should include prose and fiction as well as poetry. Poetry is aided by a poet who understands the ins and outs of story.

So, a writer shouldn’t be limited by genre.
