Poetry is the most ancient and effective form of literature. It stimulates the heart faster than prose using prosody—rhythm, musical lines, sense impressions and language. Poetry develops the “inner ear” of reflective listening and reflective learning.

From the beginning of time, man listened to the sounds around him in God’s Creation, absorbing audio inspiration. He memorialized events, emotions, and his musings of life and living using the natural music-like rhythms of language and sound—across cultures and ages.

This is Poetry!

You are invited to explore how this literary genre has helped “others see and hear what they might pass by” through this creative study of a poetry, engaging the language of heart and words.
