Question: When is the best time to write poetry!?
by TD Euwaite

Inside the mind
I plan a garden,
on the patio!.
Pots aligned,
stepping stones,
essential herbs!.

I don't think this is a metaphor!.

When you are upset, happy, and particular feeling that is in its height!.!.!.whether it be rage or whatever!. Its almost like people assume that whatever a drunk person says is the true!. Because you are at a elevated level and only pure insanity or genius things will come out of these times!.!.

whenever you write, just keep doing it!.!.dont stop!.!.even if you have writers block just start with one word and write the next word that comes into your mind!.!.!.its bound to stir up something and make you write again!.

Good Luck to you!Www@QuestionHome@Com

best time to write is as soon as the words come & u've got something to write them on!

if u wait til later, that specific brilliance could be lost!. i've learned to write on ANYthing I can find!.!.!.& if I can't do that!.!.!.write on myself!.

ideas come at all times for me!. usually times of waiting or times of in-between!.

btw, nice garden :)Www@QuestionHome@Com

It's usually when I'm sleeping, so that don't work out too good because I've either forgotten it when I wake up or I have ink marks all over my face!.

I often dream of the garden!.!.!.This year I'm going to plant flowers in Magic's dishes and put them under her tree!.!.!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

WOW! you are supposed to plan a poem--new thought to me! giggles!.!.!.

I am learning to 'let it flow' and then let it set for a while to go back and try to do something with it!.

May I write this down in my, 'things to do before you attempt a poem' notebook!?! <giggles>Www@QuestionHome@Com

Good good very good, but is this an actual question or a hook to make us read your poem, it is very good I mean probably one of the best I've seen, at least the best on YA, but the answer to the title of this question would be "Whenever you feel it is"Www@QuestionHome@Com

when the words tickle your brain to awaken you at 3 am, demanding you scribble them on the back of the electric bill return envelope because you can't find your pad of paper!.

I like the metaphor here!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

The mind is the most important thing for without it what you feel, see or touch mean nothing!.
To build a wall first you take a block and lay it in place!. To build a poem one word!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Obviously for you the middle of the night - Good write!.
For me, I come up with most of my ideas after having a few cups of coffee - mid-morning I'd say!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

I don't have a time!. I can be doing anything, including sleeping, and the words come!. If I don't write them down, they won't leave me alone!.

I like Rosemary!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

For me, the best time begins around 3AM!. With no distractions, ideas are planted and take root!. They become stepping stones to poems!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

You poem says it!. When ever the mind compiles the thought -- go to the pen!. Nice write!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
