poetry: the act of feeling

i always wondered
why i got the words for
feelings (الشعور)
poetry (الشعر)

they were always so jumbled in my head
I could never get them straight

then I learned that
feelings (الشعور)
poetry (الشعر)
are one. they stem from the same root
they belong to one other

from the root for
“to learn or understand intuitively”
“to notice or realise”
“to perceive, feel, sense”
“to be conscious or aware”
“to notify or inform”
“to be conscious”
“to be filled with feeling”

sometimes i think that
some languages are smarter than others
in their intertwined meanings
and linked words

poetry is the act of feeling
and / و
and act of feeling is poetry
