    what inspires a person to write? For me it's life.

      I get inspired by life, also. I write it down when the emotions get so strong I cannot help but write the words. If I don't, they would choke me, I think.

      getting things off your chest...not having another outlet or people who can truly relate to the inner workings of you....the pen is my voice and the paper never tells me to shut up or stop talking.  Even if I ramble the pen can articulate and the paper is always accepting!

    I am inspired by a scene, feeling, thought or a concept.  I might write a poem when I see a nice sunset and it leaves a picture in my mind.

    strong emotion that needs to come out constructively. I write poems when I start to fear them.

      I believe you. That strong emotion must come out. I write poems to get the grief, Love, fear, anger - all the strong emotions out.

        when I'm happy my poems are blah.

        when you touch that nerve,the universal nerve, the words come and they are not words but liquid tangible thought flowing through your fingers dripping truth that the human tongue traces but cannot ever ever touch.

    Something I've seen/imagined/heard/lived that just won't leave me, or that I don't wish to forget -- and just for the simple pleasure of the work of writing.

    Typically it is emotions that inspire my poetry- confusion/questions/doubt/pain/bliss/love/anger...whatever it may be. A lot of my work has a tendency to reflect on situations I am still attempting to come to terms with-it helps me understand my own thoughts and feelings about it.

    A famous writer once said that we write to know that we are not alone, I'm not sure who but , I think there's some truth there, at least it works for me . Perhaps part of the search for answers ?

    Gotta wait for it to find you, then you gotta tame it and structure it. Sometimes it takes a looooong time for one to find you.

    In the same way that I take photos to record things I want to remember, I use words to write poetry to preserve an idea or an image.
