Over the years, I have occasionally written some poetry, not as part of any long-term goal but simply whenever there was something that inspired me. I have only written a few short poems.
To me, poetry is about expressing human feelings. Poetry is able to communicate deep feelings that are extremely rich in content in just a few lines of text, feelings that would otherwise require perhaps a whole book if one had to fully explain them in prose. Poetry is based on a common cultural background and shared knowledge between the writer and the reader, which allows to express and transmit these feelings using very few words.
