The word philopoiesis comes from the Greek word philos (φίλος)[1. http://www.perseus.tufts.edu/hopper/morph?l=φίλος ] which means love and the verb poiesis (ποίησις)[2. http://www.perseus.tufts.edu/hopper/morph?l=ποίησις] which means to create.

Together, these Greek terms form a new concept that describes the process of loving creation, that is a creator of love as well as a lover of creation. And because these terms are the roots of our language, the definition cannot be very precise. It can be open to interpretation. In this case, I am using an interpretation that approaches to the process of creative love, and therefore, opens up the possibility of the concept of being poetry.
