Moving the same theme towards poetry

The poetry, like beauty, is in the poet's eyes,

The art is in distilling it in a lyrical guise.

Taking the truth of a transient vision that is distinctly personal,

To weave words into an immortal form, transcendent and universal.

And then the net result will be beautiful or not beautiful - lyrical or non lyrical - depending on the eye or the vision of the reader.

I don't suppose it matters much so long as the artist enjoys and values what he has created though. There are plenty of great works of art that I don't like. Everything - poetry, art, religion is just about belief and opinion.

I am waxing a bit today. Forgive me. Some poetry sets me off like that.
