  How Poetry Is More Than Prose
Prose tends to be denotative, without implication or ambiguity.
Yet poetry is distinguished from philosophy, obviously, by the use of verse and rhyme and, in addition, by the tendency to use metaphor, image and symbol, drawn from the human experience of the natural world and of the human artifact.
Poetry, more than any other verbal-mental activity, draws upon the full resources of mind, i.e., all of the ways in which we can be aware.

 Poetry.org - What is Poetry
Poetry can be differentiated most of the time from prose, which is language meant to convey meaning in a more expansive and less condensed way, frequently using more complete logical or narrative structures than poetry does.
A further complication is that prose poetry combines the characteristics of poetry with the superficial appearance of prose, such as in Robert Frost's poem, "Home Burial." Other forms include narrative poetry and dramatic poetry, both of which are used to tell stories and so resemble novels and plays.
In preliterate societies, poetry was frequently employed as a means of recording oral history, storytelling (epic poetry), genealogy, law and other forms of expression or knowledge that modern societies might expect to be handled in prose.

 Prose - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Prose generally lacks the formal structure of meter or rhyme that is often found in poetry most of the time.
Poetry is considered to be artificially developed ("The best words in the best order"), whereas prose is thought to have less of a border and more reflective of ordinary speech; the way it's spoken, slightly broken.
Poetry is still often regarded as a higher form of literature to prose, but the relatively late development of the novel can offer competing examples of prose.

 "Is It Poetry or Prose?" article by Caleb Murdock
Prose and poetry are two sides of the same coin.
But the essential purpose of prose is to communicate ideas, and the essential purpose of poetry is to move us with the beauty of its crafted language, and in this distinction the two diverge.
Prose can be written with extra attention to its beauty, in which case it is called "poetic prose"; and poetry can be written with extra attention to its meaning, in which case it is called "prosaic poetry".

 Poetry Previews: What's a Prose Poem?
Although the prose poem resembles a short piece of prose, its allegiance to poetry can be seen in the use of rhythms, figures of speech, rhyme, internal rhyme, assonance (repetition of similar vowel sounds), consonance (repetition of similar consonant sounds), and images.
Early poetry (such as the Iliad and the Odyssey, both written by Homer approximately 2,800 years ago) lacked conventional line breaks for the simple fact that these works were not written down for hundreds of years, instead being passed along (and presumably embellished) in the oral tradition.
Among contemporary practitioners of the prose poem are: Russell Edson, Robert Bly, Charles Simic, and Rosmarie Waldrop.

 The Prose Poem - R A I N T A X I o n l i n e
Strengths are in abundance; the traditional prose poem tends to be absurdist yet darkly moving, fabulist yet subversive of narrative, and relatively short, all of which Anderson employs to great effect in poems such as "The Somnabulists' Hotel," "The Pregnant Teapot," or "Life on the Moon" ("Like anyplace else, it has its problems").
It should be no surprise that "language poets" as well as lyric poets are attracted to the prose poem: if the key mechanism of verse is the line, then the key element of prose might be said to be syntax, and the prose poem offers a limitless field in which to experiment and play.
It is no accident that the prose poem has been so powerfully adopted by surrealists and their kin, and Prevallet's work celebrates this association by turning the in-between nature of the prose poem toward her subject matter.

 English 263 Romantic Poetry & Prose   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Their poetry honors the imagination, a supreme organizing and unifying power that plays on all that is and ought to be from the dimplicity of the common day to the complexity of self-realization.
Romantic poetry ushers in the modern world with its focus on subjectivity (the reader’s own as well as the poet’s) rather than objectivity, its elaboration of metaphorical suggestion rather than definitive idea, its exaltation of the individual rather than the species of humankind.
The incorporation of the feminine in Romantic poetry ranges from the ordinary (domestic life and mother nature) to the extraordinary (the Romantic and often androgynous ideal), and we’ll find the surprising ramifications of the feminine in both the prose and the poetry.

Many prose writers do not consider themselves fiction writers, yet at the same time are not really part of on-going poetics discussions which, for the most part, do not focus on narrative.
Although I also write prose fiction, I consider my prose poetry and other alternative, interdisciplinary, and innovative sentences to be a neoteric prose that both challenges and expands language boundaries.
By expropriating two distinct genres while presenting a form of writing that is seen to consist of both, prose poetry presents itself as hybrid writing; a hybrid that I explore as crossing between the desire to exceed formal considerations, and the narrational insistence surrounding such considerations.
