Love Poetry

Love, can be expressed in various ways.

We have come to learn the way to express love through words.

Words are considered a way to communicate with other people; without having to speak it. But, it also fully represents the writer’s feelings and personality. One uses direct words to say how much he loves her; one uses indirect phrases to praise her; another ‘sends’ a rose to remind her that her beauty is short and they better get together quickly. Of course, other styles and differences are countless to name; but I enjoyed reading the poems.

During the reading and studying, I was led into the writer’s most private part of their mind and feeling; starting each poem seemed like revealing a surprise. Every writer had such different perspectives, ways to face and treat love. This fascinated me. I used to think reading poetry is boring and the words are ever so stiff and cold; but after this time’s study and experience, I guess it changed my attitude towards poetry. It may only be a few words, but all the content is compressed and fit into the few letters. I’ve written poetry in class and during my own time, so I can understand the challenge to do so.

Overall, I guess poetry may still be hard to interpret and challenging to write, but it is a format of art and expression, therefore I appreciate it.

    Nice post Cinthy, I like your last sentence.

  • Oh, that was great! You’re right about how each writer has a different perspective. I know this from personal experience. I loved the way you incorporated how each writer has a different method. That was really good!
