Hi, for me it is when my mind is not really in active mode!. For e!.g!. today at work I was sewing away and realized that I needed to get a piece of paper and start writing!. This poem just would not leave me alone!. I had attempted this piece once before and didn't like the way it was going so left it! Today I rewrote the whole thing just about with a totally different story line!.

So for me anywhere and anytime!Www@QuestionHome@Com

Hahaha! The lead singer of the band Mew says most of the lyrics he writes come to him in dreams!. XD Explains why they're so weird!.

Usually I don't think of an idea before I write a poem!. I just think, "I feel like writing a poem!." So I do!. Usually the first lines are stuff like:

I really don't know
what this poem
will be about!.

But since we're all always thinking SOMETHING, the poem always turns out to be something!. XDWww@QuestionHome@Com

its weird but i get songs in dreams in my dream i was singing this song it was so pretty i woke up and cried and went back to sleep wow it makes me cry but now i cant remember it but i get my poems from the weather, the sky, love, sleep, dreams and many moreWww@QuestionHome@Com

I usually write when im inspired by teachers or someone
and when there is something unsettling in my life

so far in my short time of writing poetry, the only times when i write well or frequently is when these two factors come togetherWww@QuestionHome@Com
