I enjoy writing poems and sharing it with the world. As a teacher, I like to captivate and capture my students attention, spark their curiosity, imagination and inspire them. Sometimes, I do this by posting arts and crafts, drawings on bulletin boards in school hallways, and classrooms as well as using props. Writing poems for me personally is an escape, a reflection, a way to express myself,and my thoughts in a creative way. In a poem, I can say and write what I am sometimes unable to say, I know I can say it in a poem. For me writing poems is an art that translate creativity of words and imagery of the senses or the mind made of an event, feelings, inspirations imagination ect..... Writing a poem is an art composed of sounds, themes, metaphor, diction, imagination, passion, structure, emotion, beauty, verse, rhyme, stanza, etc.....Imagery is important in writing poems if you are a visual person like me you can perceive the image and the idea through the words in a poem.
Imagery is what occurs when poets use words that appeal to the senses: We perceive the image through the poet words, a sense idea or image: These images can appeal to all six senses: hearing, touch, sight, smell, taste or balance. Imagery is important in a poem because it is language that allows us to be transported to a place, time, and experience, which if the image is effective, allows us to understand the emotion being conveyed in the poem. Imagery allows the poet to show the reader, not simply writing or telling. We can only know the world through the senses; we must perceive first and reason second. Imagery is critical to understanding poems. An image presented in a poem has the power to unite the poet and the reader in the exact impulse or experience that led the poet to write the poem in the first place.
