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.

The multiple galleries of poetry collected under the Poetry menu heading include both light and contemplative verse. The variety reflects my perspective on our world and aspects which are so often laughable or grotesque.

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.
