‘Experiri’ (latin) meaning ‘to try’ is the root word for both experience and experiment. Lovely coincidence that poetry is the earthen vessel in which cooks experiri — the experiment and experience! Experimenting with language and structure, with static emotions and changed scenarios, with new and traditional, while digging into experience for that unique and unpredictable outcome, gives such rich poetry!
For Poetry Month 2022, I’ve curated a collage of poetry you might like. Notice the innovative new forms and shapes of poetry alongside the more traditional! Absolutely shouldn’t miss!
