Where Does Your Poem Begin?



Robert Frost said, "A poem begins in delight and ends in wisdom.

Where does a poem begin for you? 

How do you start anything you write?

What I write starts with something I hear or see or feel. My senses cause me to write. Sometimes it's an idea from another blog, sometimes it's the sunshine or the rain. Sometimes it's a family situation. I just write.

Pat Hatt said...

Usually just one word and then I just go all absurd, which is such fun to do. Sometimes I give a moral or some sort of wisdom though too.

DJan said...

I ponder the lead sentence, which sets the stage for the rest. It can take me awhile to write it down, but then the rest just comes... I also edit it once or twice when it's all down on "paper." :-)

Jan Mader said...

You know, sometimes when I'm working on a story I write the ending first. Sometimes it stays the same and other times it changes. At least I have a dirction.

Like Pat and DJan the first word or sentence gets me going....

Pat and DJan are both naturally good writers...like most bloggers.

For the blog it is usually a picture and a concept. Then mix in a bunch of words, add rhythm and Bob's yer uncle!!! :)

Sometimes I look at a picture 'til an idea sparks. Other times, ideas come from nowhere and everywhere. Then there are the times when there are no ideas and I must rest
with the silence.

Jan I must follow your blog. I love your ideas.

it usually starts with me seeing something...and wanting to let the world see it...or it not be missed....

When I'm reading poems, they quite often begin in obfuscation and end in ambiguity. Am I reading the wrong poets?

For me, it usually starts with a snuggle or a cuddle, feline style! purrr...meow!

I started writing in 2005 at the suggestion of my best friend who read a paragraph I wrote and she told me there was something there. Since that moment I have not stopped, it is odd how it came to me out of the blue and took on a life if its own.
I always tell people I am a muser. Not a user, but a muser. Everything,and everyone are my muses. People, strangers, animals, the wind, the rain, if it touches me I muse off of it. Now, I love poetry and writing just as much as dance, my first passion and love in life. I am an artist, I live to create.
