Poetry is meant to stir the heart and inflame the soul. The color red is associated with passion to show its intensity and the color purple intensifies even the red, in the correct blend.
But enough about color, what about the poem itself? Does it or should it, tell us something? Are there hidden motives behind the words? Mysterious meanings behind the emotions? What of the heart? What of the Soul? Are we aware that they affect us so much? Or do we try to ignore them and search for something that we think may be better?
You cannot only listen to the words in a poem but you must experience the emotions as well. Reading a poem is one thing but really experiencing it, is quite another.
The thing that we can be most passionate about is what? Love...in all its fullest intensity. So every poem will have a different meaning to you. What are the things in Love that cause us pain, sorrow, hope? These are the poems we’ll enjoy and because they affect us personally, we’ll listen to them intently and find a special meaning just for us. This is how poetry is supposed to be read.
Inspirational poetry can still be passionate. There is a spiritual passion that is in all our souls, just waiting to be expressed. God, is what we should be the most passionate about. Love for Him can inspire us to live creatively. The fire of The Holy Spirit is passionate in its intensity.
We are God's children and we need to be enjoying life. Life and Love are His creation.
