POEMS & POETRY
Poetry is a means of communication, poems about life can describe how we are feeling or express our hopes and dreams for the future.
Poetry, prayer and and meditation stimulate the brain's left hemisphere, which is responsible for creativity.
Poems can be used in cards to express our love for a person on a special day such as a birthday, anniversary, or on Valentine's Day. In speeches, for example at a graduation ceremony, where the speaker hopes to inspire and motivate new grads to go out into the world and be the best they can be, or at a funeral or memorial service when poems can express the pain we feel at times of sadness when the right words are hard to find...
Poems About Life
The power of poetry is in the words that we want to say but cannot.
Poems are written to express the desires of our heart.
Poetry can lift our spirits in a way that barely seems possible.
