To create a thought, worth it's weight in ink, I like to do this......
First I turn off the tv, stereo and ongoing commentary in my mind.
Then I like to wash my word storehouse, or at least a few.
Taking intuitive seeing, I eye for useful idea-words, & collect them. As I wash.....
Often I like to draw scribbles that somehow become scenes and characters.
Then I climb the Eternal mountain, it's just inside my spacious self.
Also it's nice to have had chili beans w/turkey. And sourdough bread.
That's some of what I do....when I'm talking to you.

Oh greedy men! Why are you cutting this tree....
who give you life and that is so free,
on loosing a materialistic friend, you mourn....
then why so inhuman for this tree,
who is your own.
Do not you remember the favours of this dear friend,
Travellers repose on its lap, fatigue came to an end.
Cows sit beneath it and squirrels swing on its boughs,
it gives oxygen, by which you children grows.
Trees are homes where sparrows twitter,
pony offsprings of their, here flitter.
What harm do you have, with this sweet friend,
Oh greedy men! Why are you inviting your death...
Go and get a seedling, plant a tree for your wellbeing.

I have just recently gotten into poetry, due to reading much of it in school. I thoroughly enjoy Robert Browning. I have so many moments in life where I feel the need to channel my emotions, and poetry is one way to do that. Does anyone have any tips of writing poetry? Before, it sounded like a 5-year-old wrote it. I have been getting better, but I need some tips to work with.
Thanks so much!Replies for this message:

Please read and review this poem:
The day is too sanguine
Still I feel so morose
Her eyes speak a lot
Still she keeps a gulf.
Oh! Roaring wind
Squeeze me with thy hands
And brew me anew
Make my mind void and
Let no memories linger any more.

Feed in comfort of extremity
tame the aches of a rebel
harbor a child of pretension
impossibility of acceptance indulge
distorting tendencies tempt the weak
return home colors within
excite laughter in purity
storm in command chill the bare
grace may blur in blackish hue
each tearful strand commits in truth
an ear to the silence of symphonies
faithful clock awaits hope to marry
a surprise in familiarity.
