    When anyone or any poet is tired writing poetry, just go ahead and read or listen to others' poems.

    To write a poem anytime, it means you have the inclination to do so. Just go ahead and never hesitate to write even one line, two lines, and a few lines.

    ...and finally write alone as many as possible better than to write nothing.

      This is great to write anything rather than not to write anything. Thanks.

    Dear members, please be informed that there are pretty ways that help anyone writing poetry. Firstly reading a lot of poems and enjoying them to different poets. Secondly listening to audio tapes concerned with poetry. Thirdly writing any kind in any way just to motivate one's writing skills. If one's grammar is not strong, then he can start learning well. Fourthly relying on friends who are poets to get some help from. Studying the poetry's techniques well. I hope I offered good tips to all friends.Thanks.

      Sir, you are forgetting about the possibility of collaboration with other poets. Also bouncing ideas off the heads of non poets can be useful if you use it right.

    Readers in truest sense do not bother the length and height of a poem. They simply find a poem to read which catches them to a flight of different world not they known it before.

    Poem does not depend on its preoccupied measuring parameters. It's much mathematical practiced by those who are already mechanical with their forms not to expose undefined by it's spirit.

    Many times the reader will become bored with a long poem. a good idea I have found is about 14-18 lines. I keep my work much shorter than that. If a poem is getting very long end the poem. Take the last line start a new poem and continue the same thought

      Great comment. Very good advice. Just wanted to add that if the poem is to short, it could be in danger of being classified as a quote. So keep both extremes in mind and find a happy medium. Its hard ... more

    the title is very important to the poem. an impressive title will get the attention of the reader. many time the title can come from a few words in the poem describing it.

    Hey guys, I was hoping for some feedback on the poem I wrote today, it's the first time ever I have written a poem so I really don't know if it's good or not: 3
    Here it is:

    I'm standing in the grass, looking up at the yellow sky. I wish I could lay down and stay here, but the air is starting to get chilly. The sun is slowly disappearing behind the trees, and the more darker it gets, the more i'm feeling alone. Something is missing, but I don't know what. The only thing I can hear are my own thoughts in the night, and soon I can't see at all.
