Poetry And The Creative Mind Day
Through all of history, creative minds have been at the forefront of innovation and growth. They challenge our notions of what is possible through poetry and art and shine a light on the society that gave them their start. Poetry and The Creative Mind Day is a day dedicated to honoring the brilliant minds of these creative pioneers. Many of us were exposed to poetry and art as a child, whether it was through our parents singing nursery rhymes or the combination poetry and art found in books such as Dr. Suess and Shel Silberstein, the creator of Where the sidewalk ends.
Poetry and Creative Mind Day is an excellent opportunity to find old poems, read them, and sing your favorite nursery rhymes. If you are more inclined to physical mediums, then you can get out your pencils and paintbrushes. Poetry and Creative Mind Day is an excellent day to start if you aren’t a creative type.
You can celebrate it in many ways, such as memorizing old poems or writing your own. Poetry can be left in creative places if you are an adventurous type. Sticky notes can be used to leave small portions of poetry on bathroom stalls. You can also print them out and place them on desks. Poetry readings are a great way to celebrate and they are still a popular form of gathering creative minds. You can organize a poetry reading if you are unable to find one.
Many theories exist about the role of the poet in society. The compressed nature of poetry information tends to reach the subconscious mind of people. It creates imagery, evokes memories, and triggers emotions about events that are happening around and within people. Writing is where impulse meets thought, allowing the conscious mind and subconscious to communicate. Some believe that the poet should use this communication to communicate the truth to those who are unable to see it.
Poetry can take many forms. From the Iambic Pentameter of William Shakespeare to the Japanese Haiku’s rigid structure to the simple rhymes of children’s nursery rhymes to the complex rhyming structure of Japanese Haiku, poetry can take many forms. Acrostic poetry is a form that uses a word from a person’s first name to create poetry. It uses the letters of the first name as the framework for the poem. Concrete poetry is poetry that has been created in particular shapes, such as a tree or rainbow. These are only a few examples of hundreds of types of concrete poetry that can be found all over the globe and in its many thousands of cultures.
Poetry and Creative Mind Day is a day to get your brain out and to give it a chance to be inspired by poetry. Every song we hear on the radio today is inspired by a poem. These lyrics are simply put to music and called poetry. Poetry is not just for High School English or Liberal Arts. It is an effective and real way to express thoughts and emotions, share them with others, or simply get them onto paper. Poetry and Creative Mind Day is not over. Don’t let it pass you by. Write one!
