Expressing Yourself Through Poetry
Here are a few ideas that may help you get ready to write.
I hope you find them useful.
First off, don't think specifically about writing a poem.
Think about what is on your mind, think about your feelings,
and write based on how you feel moved by these thoughts.
Don't worry about the rules of grammar - in particular, modern
poetry doesn't have to be composed of perfectly complete sentences
or paragraphs. Aim to express your main idea or feeling. Feel
a rhythm to your words, and remember, you don't have to make
everything rhyme perfectly. The idea is to paint a picture
with your words.
When you've finished, put your work down for a while and
try not to think about it. After a few hours or even days,
pick your work back up and reflect on it. How do you feel
about the poem now? Has writing this poem caused you to see
anything about your life or about this situation in a fresh
way? Are you inspired to add to the poem, change it, or start
a new one? Go with those feelings as the process of wiritng
continues to help you clarify your thoughts.
Read your poem aloud and listen to the picture you have painted,
sense the rhythm of the words. How do you feel when you read
it aloud? Expand on that if you wish as well.
That's just a small, small start into writing poetry. I hope
to add to this section over time, but I hope this is a gentle
inspiration to get started.
