As someone starting out to write poetry what would be your advice?
write about what you know,what you feel, and write from your heart.
"Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words." (Robert Frost)
Another thing to consider when beginning to write poetry is the power of words. Always be aware and very careful of the words you choose in your poetry unless all of the emotional integrity and beauty of your work could be lost.
the best thing for writing a poetry is to arrange for a seat in the most calming environs...far from the maddening rush of life...
And remember...that rhyming is not very important in poetry....the flow of your thoughts is.....
Keep a daily journal of thoughts and ideas even a dream journal. Use real life feelings or experiences .
The only thing that helped me when I began writing poetry was to stop reading other people's work. You need to find your voice and that gets extremely hard when you keep hearing other people's works as they intrude on your conscious meditations.

There is no correct way to write poetry! But one thing to remember is that poetry is like whiskey and prose is like beer.

I have some real issues writing poetry. I love reading it and I would love to write it beyond a second grade level, but I keep getting stuck and it never conveys what I originally had planned. What do you find helpful? Is it just some people don't have a poetic bone in their body?
