    The essential rules of poetry are: to keep the poetry coming, to read poetry by others, to study the poetic forms, to attend open mics (listen to the spoken word) , to look for other rules to bend, to revise, to connect with other poets, to share your work, to submit and to publish on your own.

    A dreamer can't write poetry, poetry is the subject of illustrator who illustrates by words the dream of his/her own or of others. Poet illustrates beauty of the universe and extract beauty from extreme ugliness (if degree could be applied to define extremity) . Any way, word-artist who illustrates past-present-future, to be, not to be, etc. Poet enver waits to dream callously. Always poet fights to penetrate through dark to throw light of his/her own.

      I will ask you to clarify what you mean by " a dreamer cannot poetry" . I am a dreamer and I write. Or do you mean one who only dreams and never by actions brings dreams to life?

    ah, poetry is funny! i have been right for few years now..sometimes i loose morale and i would go for a month or two without writing anything if this happens, i am drawn back to writing and i find it a strange business again..even my old poems sound like they were never written by me.
    the choice of vocabulary seem strange and yet i wrote them.

    Anyone can the poetry he likes or she likes, but gifted people (poets or poetesses) have their own ways in showing things or persons in a different way. Thanks.

    Someone asked me today, how do I write my poems and it got me thinking, how do i?
    Because 100% of the time I do not think of a word or an idea for a poem, I just put a pen on paper and a poem happens.

    The best way to think of it I suppose would be,
    My emotions use my hands, to create a poem, based on how they see and how they feel. And only after it is done my mind is allowed to catch up and admire what they have written
