William Wordsworth ,a prominent poet once defined poetry as 'a spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings ' . I disagree.
When I heard it first I felt it's right ,but when I experienced it I realised that it's wrong. Cause when it happened I was so much full of extreme feelings that I couldn't concentrate on anything ,except on the thing that happened. But I wrote a poem the next day about it .
Poetry isn't a sudden overflow of powerful feelings because when it happens you can not even think and if you can not think how can you write ?
So for me poetry is the aftermath of your overflown
