These are the questions I have been asking around and myself. Though I have some friends who are writers, they are not poets. One out of the writers is a poet whereas my writing isn’t so well but unexpectedly, poetry opens my unique poetic voice. I really thank God for opening my voice. Wish you all have good days and thank you.

  1. I think poets are certainly writers, but writers have a range to spread out on – they can be all of it or the smallest thing – but not always a poet. If someone told me I wasn’t a writer, it would sadden me – because it isn’t true. Good questions though (: Good thinking.

  2. Poetry not necesary nees to be writen, it can be visual, video art, photography …

    I believe that poetry is a one step more than writing, a state in itself.

    Poetry is a picture painted with words

  3. Mark Twain spoke of the β€œbest word, not it’s second cousin” and Coleridge distinguised between prose and poetry as β€œprose – words in their best order, poetry – the best words in their best order.”
