Words In Their Best Form … That’s the most succinct definition of Poetry I’ve ever heard. Consider the wedding topper pictured below, a bride and groom (work with me here) both arrayed in their best form. He’s wearing a top hat and tuxedo, she’s wearing a veil and carrying a lovely bouquet.

For many, the idea (of Poetry being words in their best form) might be an open question. I get it. Not everyone enjoys the beauty of verse. For me though, my love of poetry is a constant challenge to arrange words in their best form. When the words are right, it can be as magical as a first kiss.
