I've been writing poetry since I was a child. My love for poetry was passed on to me by my dad Eriks Raisters who was a popular Latvian poet and writer.
I have been writing poetry for as long as I can remember. Some of its even good.
I wrote my first poem in middle school as an assignment. But I have been reading poetry since I was a little girl and found my dad's copy of "The Complete Works of Robert Service."
Poetry as such, I've only been writing about 5 months. Inspired by my discovery of "spoken word poetry". I had no idea of the freedom poetry gives to share your thoughts and emotions creatively. My preference is to dispense with all the rules of poetry writing...I don't bother with rhyme or format... just let the images flow.
But I've been writing poetic songs for years, and they DO rhyme, and they do have structure in their verses... so I guess my answer should also be 30 years.
Yes indeed I too can relate to much of your experience with poetry writing, although I been writing it since grammar school. I love the freedom it allows us authors to full embrace our emotional side and unleash the most creative poetic verses.
I do not remember when I started writing poetry. What I do know is that I have an app on my phone that allows me to write my inspirations down when and/or where ever I may appear.
