At this time, members of Shelley's literary circle would sometimes challenge each other to write competing sonnets on a common subject:
I want to share my apprice to getting something down and what think helps to write every day. I believe every poet has a particular type of poetry in which they excel most at writing and can dig into more effortlessly or without much struggle.
The style and approach will show up in any free write. I think this is half the battle in finding it easier to begin a poem. When I took a writing course online, other student kept comparing my work to imagine poets.
I researched and then new where I fitted. For me my love of figurative language and writing a poem more imagery driven. I also learned my voice. The way I approach when I speak natural in plain speech. For ideas for poems for me.
I take pictures or videos. I prefer to write about it after I have left it. This forced my mind to remember only what was most significantx what senses most represent the thing.
So I look at a picture and then in a few minutes or so, I write about it. For my recently print published imagist poem that got me selectwd as a distinguished writer, I wrote it along with the movement of the thing in memory in my mind, and almost every part is figurative in some way.
It is a persona poem with several lines of personification shown in different ways. But I did not begin with this idea in mind. I am an imagist poet by nature. Even my short narrative are like imagist poems, they are more like a scene describe wit a little bit of dialogue.
My suggestion would be to simply collect the senses you remember of the thing or place or person. For example when you write about a person especially, you make a list of things mostly connected to that person and physical thing you notice, and write any metaphors or similes for them in a separate list.
This method is also good for writing about a thing. It could be as questions to the reader to. Also when you write each sentence write without looking back at the last sentence u wrote o thinking of it. Also when you are done, read your list from bottom to up, maybe the poem is coming toget her backwards, and need to be flipped.
When you have your 3 list, then play around with the sentences, rearrange, mix them up and see what happens. Also you can writing them all on scrap paper and standing over them and moving them around to see what happens. Can also write on a message pad, as a message to someone or write it a a warning to someone about the thing.
I wrote a poem two days ago that my poetry fans love and it was written a warning poem, in regards to a thing I came across outside. So warning poems, messages, letter poems are great way to get into a poem.
Another one of my popular poems was the presentation of a thing. I wrote with my poem opening with someone bringing something in the room. Then I wrote my personal connection to the thing, getting into the physicalNess of the thing, getting to know it for the first time, and also any impression it left and any dialogue about the thing.
My poem ended up attracting much attention from other poets in school group. You can use my approach to writing on the presentation of the thing as famous imagist poets have said to do.
For me presentation is also the actual bringing of the thing. For example if you went to write about your parents coming in the room, what do they bring with them that affect your personally and deeply?
I am a published and awarded poet. Learning various ways to begin poems will help you to write more poetry with least stress.How to Write a Poem.
