As we hear about someone is a poet, the first thought we are stuck with is that he has a god gift in the form of words, or he must have greater intellectual skills than me.  But certainly, that is not the case. Everyone can become a poet; everyone can write. As Plato said, "At a touch of love everyone becomes a poet." That is not the only case. You don't have only to be a lover either. Then how can one write and how can one initiate to write that we are about to learn in the subsequent chapters.

What is poetry and Why do we write poetry?

To learn about the concept of writing a poem, the above question has to be thoroughly understood.

Poetry is a literary work in which the expression of feelings and ideas is given intensity by the use of distinctive style and rhythm.

Poetry is a lot of things to a lot of people.  For example, Dylan Thomas described poetry as this way, "Poetry is what makes me laugh or cry or yawn, what makes my toenails twinkle, what makes me want to do this or that or nothing.", and William Wordsworth defined poetry as "the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings". For every poet, poetry pours a different essence.
