I would say the best thing you could do for your poetry, if you want to write in English, is to continue to study the language. It's great that you already write as well as you do!
As to your poem here - I think you can delete the word " art" from the second line. And why was your mind " reluctant" ? Its seems when you sat down that your mind was jumping with ideas that you were eager to get out (through the " pipe of poetry" - I like that line!) - but that for some reason you weren't able to. Also, I'm confused by the word " prospect" - do you mean idea?
What does your pipe of poetry look like? A corncob pipe? A hookah? I'm curious!
