    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

    as i love beat poetry so i would say that you should (as Alan Ginsburg said about Kerouac) write like jazz musicians play. i personally think putting pen to paper is far better than waiting for something to come to you. also read Blake :)

    Medical experts encourage us to exercise regularly in order to stay healthy. I believe writing poetry is a way of exercising your mind both intellectually and physically

    To improve your poetry writing it is important to be inspired by whatever the poem will be about.

    From my experience i think in order to write poem that really touch the soul of a reader, the one they can relate to it when they read, i think they normally came from what we went through and really feel how sad or happy that thing is.What i really mean is that a poem becomes more pure when it comes from part of our life not fictional.And the value of a poem solely depends on a poet

    Poetry creats a bridge of expressions linking both fantasy and reality to exist in one world.
