Poet: a person who possesses special powers of imagination or expression.
What comes to mind when you hear the term, Poet.
Shakespeare? Jim Morrison? Hemingway? Maybe Bukowski.
The last two names you might recognize more as writers than poets, but I argue they are one of the same. Now can you think of who might be considered a modern poet?
Anyone who can bring words together that instills any sense of emotion is a poet. I am focusing here in terms of written words. But if we look at what I’ve just written, we could assume the title of poet doesn’t stop at written words.
And indeed, poetry exists in written form but also spoken as well.
