Poïesis & Poïetic

Poïesis means “to make” in ancient Greek   ποιέω (creation, from , to make). This word, the root of our modern “poetry”, was first a verb, an action that transforms and continues the world. Neither technical production nor creation in the romantic sense, poïetic work reconciles thought with matter and time, and man with the world.
 
Poïetic from Greek ποιητικός (creative) meaning productive or formative.
 
Poet from Greek ποιητής (maker) meaning workman, author, poet.
