What is poetry? It's making a mountain out of a molehill. It's taking someone who spent their entire life looking at dust particles and turning said life into The Oddysee. It's taking the mundane and making it into the extrodinairy It's lifting a veil, showing the unseen worlds, showing that there is more to this world than we think. It's showing that despite what your preconcieved notions might be about reality, there are fractals within fractals, patterns within patterns. Poetry is showing what goes on behind the closed doors of an open mind. Poetry tells a story, a story of vigor, a story of thirst, and zest. Poetry is ultimately, a very noble jest.
