    "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.
