Loving Poetry

It may be good if readers find something other than math in this blog. So as an alternative reading, I have decided to include a category ‘poetry’ in this blog. This will provide my readers something other than math education. There are many who love poetry.

In the words of American poet Paul Engle

Poetry is ordinary language raised to the Nth power. Poetry is boned with ideas, nerved and blooded with emotions, all held together by the delicate, tough skin of words

I have included this category in this blog because of my own love and association with poetry.

Another consideration for me is the great importance of poetry in education. Though I am not a poetry teacher and tutor, I have been tutoring English writing, English speech etc.

Here I want to share my experiences of poetry in a way that interests readers and also satisfies my association with it.

Music also has poetry very commonly as songs. This is one reason why there are so many poetry fans.

I am also a big music fan.

I love Twitter because it allows only short sized tweets. It may be a limitation in a way but a very important strength same time. Any person who tweets knows that he has to convey his/her meaning in a very short form. People reading tweets don’t have to read much which is convenient for them.

Shortness in poetry is very common which is like a twitter tweet. Many poems are short. It is one thing I love about poetry.

I find it great to remember short poems, then keep on repeating them in my mind. It is wonderful to know the depth of meaning that they carry.
