But what if it's the other way around?
What if the way you see the sun and stars are already influenced by the poems that have come before you?
In this sense, life doesn't determine poetry, poetry determines life.
Poetry, in this sense, is not a genre of course (not determined by the line break), it is what determines, it is what triggers, the feelings you feel in 'real' life.
I like this approach because it avoids the idea that poetry is derivative of experience and, at the same time, shows that we don't do anything in a vacuum.
We become writers, not magic users.
