Writing Poetry: 101 Writing With Poetic Energy Poem by Terence George Craddock (Afterglows Echoes Of Starlight)

Writing Poetry: 101 Writing With Poetic Energy

poems are written when the poem is ready
a poem has a thematic poetic personality
a poem will not be rushed forced exhorted
a poem flows into being in written creativity

in the beginning writing is a win lose situation
sometimes 2 steps forward then one step back
we write inspired beginning good to fading bad
eventually we find creative expression a few styles
we begin the journey to write write a little better
at a guess a lot of a poet's experimental early poems
should have kept to a flowing pure simple originality
more is less rhythm words concise rather than extending

into more complex ideas less accessible unless desirable
writing poetry is a learning curve let poetry speak
as regards advice find your poetic style from within
write yourself with diversity not clone someone else
this seeking your own spark styles applies to all of us
in one way or another so the advice write own images

the basics a draft is a draft is a draft
with spelling errors bad arrangement
rushed forced laboured clichéd verses

'Write What You Think', 'Write Often'
'Trying To Write At The Wrong Time'
will not write fresh crisp sparkling verse

when it is time to write
when the moment sudden comes
you do not have to read anything

do what you have to do
write what you have to write
power to your pen my friend

be patient let the words come
let the words come when they want
let the words come as they want

when the flame
of sudden instant
inspiration ignites

into a poem contained
whole glimmering shining
exquisite in the mind

write fast as a pure
spontaneous stream
of poetic thoughts

flows flows flows
