poetic (duet/do it)
The basic structure of Poetry
Can be divided into two parts
To explain it easily-
The Art and the Craft
The tools that comprise the art part
Are your emotions, experiences, observations
While the craft is about being smart
With your lexicon,knowledge, beliefs and opinions
The Art requires the poet
To be nonjudgmental and vulnerable
While the Craft completes the duet
With its grasp and command over faculties mental.
ART TOOL KIT:
Emotions - Lend unpredictability to one's poems making them unique.
Experiences - Provide the material and assist with the narrative.
Observations - Lend specificity to one's ideas while balancing the emotional unpredictability by their elements of awareness and curiosity.
CRAFT TOOL KIT:
Lexicon - The vocabulary, grammar and exposure to the writings of others which collectively draw in the reader.
Knowledge - The assimilated logic which provides one with readymade topics
Which when internally processed turn to Beliefs
And when externally expressed turn to Opinions on a blank sheet.
The Art must always have an upper hand
If the poet wants to get across to readers
While the Craft makes the process grand
Like silk on which golden words are embroidered.
The recommended ratio of Art:Craft is 60:40 atleast
for the poem to stand out and speak to the audience,
This delicate balance between the two halves is reached
Only by constant practice and resilience.
