Poetry's Unconstrained Depths
It's rather difficult to define this art-form without listing examples of its many dimensions in metered expression. Sonnets, haikus, couplets among many other specifically rhythmic assemblies of words are conjured to the mind when the word is mentioned. However, poetry can include art of any form, even sans words, depending on the eye (or perhaps ear) of the beholder. One might find it in the motions of a ballet, or the quiet sounds of nature when watching the stars. The word can be applied as a synonym for art, and often is. Whether you enjoy the structure of an Italian sonnet, or the freedom of imagery-filled prose, poetry can be found anywhere by those who recognize its descriptive, emotive, grace in the undeniable internal reaction it elicits.
