I'm an author that writes poetry. So I got a few tips for you on writing poetry. Imagination is alwaqys great but real life things help also. Imagination is sometimes not good when it makes no sense, or in other words no thesis statement. Unless your sure of what you want to write about, jot your ideas down. Have a writersblock? Wait untill later when you mind becomes cleare to other ideas.

Start off by writing random words that have something in common. Then see if you can string them together. it works for me!

These are my directions: 1. Think of a topic that you want to write on. 2. Think of a first line. 3. Think of words that rhyme with the last word on the last sentence. 4. Keep on doing it, and you'll have a poem. 5. Revise it if necessary.

For poetry, you need to go outside and look at nature, or close your eyes and think about your life. Another way is to close your eyes and use your imagination.

I'm new here too. I just got on. So this the first time for me being on these message boards. You know you can use your imagination to write just about anything you want, even poetry. And Your poem doesn't doesn't have to be about sunsets or flowers. It does not have to be mushy. Just practice and practice a poem until you think its good. Your on your own now. Thanks!

i'm new to this message board too and my advise to you is that the theme of the poem depends on how you want it to be. like sadness, if you want to write about that you have to think about something that makes u sad most of all and pour it all out on the paper. most poems and poetry also rhyme at the end of the sentence. ever heard of quatrains? couplets? sonnets? if you haven't look them up. maybe that will help u, heck i think it will help you! good luck ;)

When I write poetry, I write about what I am feeling.Say, your feeling blissful. Write a poem on how that feels. Poetry is simply putting how you feel on paper. Pour yourself on the pages. ~ A poet

When writing poetry, try to add tone and voice. Don't forget correct punctuation and correct grammer and spelling. When you read your poem out loud, read it with expressions and feeling as if you are the main character yourself and you're describing your life as the main character, sort of. Just try what I suggested. I'm a straight A student with all my subjects, even though I hate math. Follow my advice and you'll most likely get an A in your English class for poems.

You're request is kind of vague, but I'll do what I can. Some of the key points of poetry are, of course, the content, the overall flow and rhythm of the piece, and your word choice. Let's start with the content. Now really, writing about something or someone you feel very passionate about produces the best writing, because you're emotionally invested in that piece. The flow and rhythm of the piece can be hard sometimes, but just make sure that the length of the line is somewhat equal. It also helps if the poem rhymes, but that does not mean that the poem strictly has to rhyme. In poetry, word choice is one of the most important elements of writing. Make your words descriptive and use compact language. Compact language is fitting a large concept into a few powerful words or phrases. The more powerful your words are, the more impact you'll have on your audience. I hoped my comment helped you. -Frenchdonut-

Poetry is my emotion,it comes from heart. you do not always have to rhyme or do it a certain way, you can make your own type of poetry. but you can not just write it, you have to write it with heart and effort.
