Inspirational Poem WritingSubmitted by Jayden Palmer on Sat, 09/28/2019 - 8:35pm
What gets you feeling inspirational? Believe it or not, most of our inspiration comes from the most random things we see in life.
In an article published on the Poetry Foundation website, FAQs: How Do You Get Started With a Poem? Do You Start With an Idea or Just Start Writing? By Camille Dungy, she writes about some of her own experiences with finding inspiration for poetry writing. She starts with herthoughts about nostalgia, which I know I can relate too, as well as many others. How one thought leads to another and another. And after lining out a plethora of thoughts, she would write a poem.
Of course, she does also explain how all of those details and thoughts might end up written in your first poem, but that doesn't mean they will end up staying there, which is okay.
