I wish that I could give you an educated answer, but the truth is i run on emotion and I feel vibes, I have been in a bubblebath before and knew that it was about to happen again, and I jumped up dripping wet and got my guitar and sang all 5 verses of my latest, ...which I have proudly listed on ITUNES...Lisa Renee..."the logging trail"...sums up a big part of my childhood, thank God I can sing about it now, many years ago...at the age of 12 I knew that I had to do something about my life, I was surrounded by poverty...sorry to be so long-winded, I am very passoniate about my beliefs...I wish you health and happiness...lisa
Life. Seriously though. Just..life. Things that have happened to me, to others, things I've seen, things I want to see, concepts I think of, wishes I have, things I feel or have felt, absolutely everything is inspiration. Sorry, I just can't pick something to flag as 'major'!
I am essentially a prose writer. Sometimes I get a flash to write a poetry and those who read it say it is actually prose split at odd places!
I am inspired to write poetry when the only way I can express my thoughts is through analogy or imagery. Usually I can write in a logical manner but when that is not possible, a poem springs forth and explains it much better!
Poetry was my first love as a writer in my early years of life.
But eventually, I didn't like writing it. I don't know why, but I didn't. I just preferred reading other people's poems.
Now, I ony write poetry it seems when I'm walking through valleys in my life. I started doing this as a new Christian, struggling in my walk with God. I would write poems about my desires to be close to Him. I wanted a relationship with the Lord that I wasn't experiencing then. Now I look back at some of those writings and see that they were prophetic.
In a nutshell, I write poetry when I'm dealing with great emotional pain.
all the cards life is always dealing
Sitting, and thinking,
and when i'm alone drinking.
When i'm feeling good
or wishing i could.
When i'm alone and single

Actually, anything and everything. I observe the goings around me and listen to my spirit. Most times, the first line of the poem comes and once I put pen to paper, the rest follows.
My love for my parent and children inspired me to write a poem, a poem is a true feeling of one's heart and mind, when you are happy everything feels so good and you feel like praising the natural beauty.

Any writer or journalist who wants to retain his (sic) integrity finds himself (sic) thwarted by the general drift of society rather than by active persecution. The sort of things that are working against him are the concentration of the press in the hands of a few rich men, the grip of monopoly on radio and the films, the unwillingness of the public to spend money on books, making it necessary for nearly every writer to earn part of his living by hackwork, the encroachment of official bodies like the M.O.I. and the British Council, which help the writer to keep alive but also waste his time and dictate his opinions, and the continuous war atmosphere of the past ten years, whose distorting effects no one has been able to escape. Everything in our age conspires to turn the writer, and every other kind of artist as well, into a minor official, working on themes handed down from above and never telling what seems to him the whole of the truth. - George Orwell
The Cosmic dance inspires me. After realizing life is not lived in planning for a future but to truly live is to be now. To participate in the eternal dance.

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