Poetry: writing that formulates a concentrated imaginative awareness of experience in language chosen and arranged to create a specific emotional response through meaning, sound and rhythm. – The Merriam Webster Dictionary
Literature is aesthetic, and poetry is aesthetic literature. It utilizes the rhythmic qualities of language, such as phonaesthetics, sound symbolism and metre, to enhance the meaning of prose. Poetry has a long history, probably as long as history itself. Poetry and poets still continue to thrive and enthrall their fans, and no literature platform is complete without a section of poetry.
Welcome to the Poetry section of The Beam Magazine. The poetry section will showcase some of the finest upcoming and established poets of our times, with poems and ghazals carefully screened by our editorial team. There will be poems, ghazals and nazms in both English and Urdu. We hope that the poetry loving section of our readers will be regaled with our selection of poems and poets.
