Happy World Poetry Day: Check out some of the finest expression of creative human spirit

New Delhi: World Poetry Day, which recognises the unique ability of poetry to capture the creative spirit of the human mind, is on Sunday.

World Poetry Day celebrates one of humanity’s most treasured forms of cultural and linguistic expression and identity. Practiced throughout history – in every culture and on every continent – poetry speaks to our common humanity and our shared values, transforming the simplest of poems into a powerful catalyst for dialogue and peace.

“Arranged in words, coloured with images, struck with the right meter, poetry has a power that has no match. This is the power to shake us from everyday life and the power to remind us of the beauty that surrounds us and of the resilience of the human spirit.”

—  Audrey Azoulay, Director-General, on the occasion of 2020 World Poetry Day
