A short poem describing poets as artists
Artistry of Poetry

A poet is a type of artist,
employing the medium of words,
engaging his use of imaginative awareness,
perhaps of beauty, inspired by a songbird.

His poem is like a painting,
viewed with various interpretations,
His palette of colorful words make
his poem a communication.

The poet’s words are expressed
to evoke and stir emotions,
or to titillate the six senses
through physiological sensations.

The poet brings to his art
a life with an audible heartbeat,
accomplished with rhyme and rhythm,
making the poem complete.

To validate or eradicate,
to love or hate,
to remember or forget,
readers decide the poem’s fate.

Touching a consciousness,
implanting new thoughts,
opening a closed mind,
for poets, the reward sought.
