    At its core, poetry does involve a lot of imagination. And an active one at that!

    This is the true definition of poetry. It’s actually poetic in itself.

    I love poetry because it allows you to create an ideal world that doesn’t exist. You can be whatever you want.

    I am not aware that she is the author of the quote. I have read that quote many times now. I am sure that some people are trying to steal it because of the message it employs to us.

    Poetry is one way where you can have all your imaginations. Poetry is also an expression of feelings. The all kinds of love, sorrow and happiness. For todays generations, poetry is now a glimpse of the tradition of our history.
