One day I decided to research what poetry truly meant and this is what I found...
1350-1400; Middle English: poetrie < Medieval Latin: poētria poetic art, derivative of poēta poet; Greek: poiḗtria poetess
late 14c., "poetry; a poem; ancient literature; poetical works, fables, or tales," from Old French: poetrie (13c.), and perhaps directly from Medieval Latin: poetria (c.650), from Latin: poeta (see poet ). In classical Latin, poetria meant "poetess."
From French: poetrie, from Latin: poetria, from Ancient Greek: ποίησις (poíēsis, “poetry”), from ποιέω (poiéō, “I make, do, create”).
As we can see, poetry ancient literature and the works or tales of a poet. Poet itself is derived from poetess, which denotes that literature aka knowledge and wisdom is feminine in nature and origin. We all know that Big Amma Mama is THe Queen that knows all and authorizes all works throughout the universe. True poetry is her divine essence spoken through her sons and daughters. I know you see that "make, do, create" in there too!
Let's take a more in depth look at what a poet/poetess is.
1250-1300; Middle English: poete < Latin: poēta < Greek: poiētḗs poet, literally, maker, equivalent to poiē-, variant stem of poieîn to make + -tēsagent noun suffix
C13: from Latin: poēta, from Greek: poiētēs maker, poet, from poiein to make
early 14c., "a poet, a singer" (c. 1200 as a surname), from Old French: poete (12c., Modern French: poète) and directly from Latin: poeta "a poet," from Greek: poetes "maker, author, poet," variant of poietes, from poein, poiein "to make, create, compose," from Proto-Indo-European *kwoiwo- "making," from root *kwei- "to pile up, build, make" (cf. Sanskrit: cinoti "heaping up, piling up," Old Church Slavonic: činu "act, deed, order").
So a poet is a maker, creator, composer, builder and piles up?! Whoa! All of these actions sound exactly like what the true and living Moors of ancient times until now did and do. A pile up reminds me of a pyramid and is also a meaning of the divine title Amaru, which also means MRY, which also means "pyramid, love" in ancient KMT. Our great Mother created us to be love, create love, compose love, build love and spread love. Love is the law and harmony is law's accord. Go figure.
A poem is a body as work as true literature is a body bearing enlightenment and truth. True Moors are bodies of pure water possessing the principles of love, truth, peace, freedom and justice. Literally, righteous Moors are the true and living embodiment of "poetry in motion" to cleanse the world of all ills and disease. Now you see where that phrase has its origins.
Additionally, to compose is to gather or together (checkout our earlier post on composure). True Moors are about building bridges, unifying and bringing people together from all nations to form striving, prosperous and ALIVE communities for the greater good of humanity and the universe at large. Sound poetry helps to heal cracks in our DNA and create sound people by bringing the truth together (remembering) within, then bringing the true and living beings together outside to spread life around the world on a greater scale. Real poetry is sound and sound is the sun as we're all children of. The life we give is the life we live™.
So next time you read a poem, you'll know the depths of what a soul may hold. One can only be what they're made to be. If thy Mother is wisdom, poetry is as water. The deepest seas were birthed within her royal highness, The Most High. Praise be.
