Poetry is an interesting art form that seems certainly to be lesser practiced among the general populace than perhaps painting or playing instruments. It seems that every other person enjoys painting or playing the piano or guitar as a means to express themselves, but few count themselves as poets and this is a perplexing divide.

What makes this odd is the fact that poetry is arguably one of the most accessible forms of self-expression available. Whereas being able to paint is a gift that very few of us have, and being able to play an instrument is something that requires both a certain level of aptitude and years and years of practice – being able to write poetry simply requires that you be able to write words and doesn’t even necessarily mean you need to be able to spell.

To write poetry then is something that we all already can do then, and it simply means putting words into an order to describe a feeling, an emotion, or even an experience or sight. Of course we normally think of poetry as being kind of ‘beautiful’ and of including rhyme, and a unique structure and of generally sounding lyrical and flowing off the tongue. This is something that we all cannot already do, and which comes with time and practice.

However these are not fundamental requirements of poetry and in fact sometimes rhyming or using gimmicks can even cheapen an otherwise very touching and moving poem. The secret then is simply to write from the heart and to honestly try and capture your emotion in words. This can be done in a few words such as in Haiku, or can be done in the form of a huge story that breaks the conventions we normally associate with narrative stories in the form of an epic poem.
