Poetry is a gift for some, with an expression of feelings and ideas by the use of distinctive style and rhythm. Poems are collectively a genre of literature, versification and metrical composition, it can be a spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings.

PoetryAt the most basic level, poetry is an experience produced by two elements of language: “sense” and “sound.” It is to evoke meaning in addition to thought and/or experience.

When I released my analog of poetry last August, it was a collection of  thought provoking experience throughout years.

Join me tonight me tonight at 6:30 pm on “Conversations Of A Sistah” via blogtalkradio.com as I kick off National Poetry month with a discussion of poetry and how it evokes thought and meaning. I will share some of my favorite poetry from my book “These Things” The Diary Of A Poet!

All “Conversation links” in this post will access tonight’s show.
