    ah, poetry is funny! i have been right for few years now..sometimes i loose morale and i would go for a month or two without writing anything if this happens, i am drawn back to writing and i find it a strange business again..even my old poems sound like they were never written by me.
    the choice of vocabulary seem strange and yet i wrote them.

      You can also write prose poetry. Poems of this kind do not need to rhyme. There are also other forms in poetry and it is up to you to decide which form you will have and develop.

      The best advice I can give you is to read poetry. read it aloud. Think about the meter. does it rhyme or not? Do you like it?do you like the rhyme?(why and why not) How would you do it differently? ... more

    Anyone can the poetry he likes or she likes, but gifted people (poets or poetesses) have their own ways in showing things or persons in a different way. Thanks.

    Someone asked me today, how do I write my poems and it got me thinking, how do i?
    Because 100% of the time I do not think of a word or an idea for a poem, I just put a pen on paper and a poem happens.

    The best way to think of it I suppose would be,
    My emotions use my hands, to create a poem, based on how they see and how they feel. And only after it is done my mind is allowed to catch up and admire what they have written

    as i love beat poetry so i would say that you should (as Alan Ginsburg said about Kerouac) write like jazz musicians play. i personally think putting pen to paper is far better than waiting for something to come to you. also read Blake :)

    Medical experts encourage us to exercise regularly in order to stay healthy. I believe writing poetry is a way of exercising your mind both intellectually and physically
