Writing your poem don’t just stick to flowery descriptions, but you need to think of scenes, which convey sense. Reading the best poems will help inspire you to think about important elements of poetry-writing, such as themes and style. Your unexpected words changes (between the highbrow and the colloquial), are always able to create interest. If you’re ready to start your poem, start the process here, reading three famous poems.

WONDER – Ibn Arabi

Wonder, a garden among the flames! My heart can take on any form: a meadow for gazelles, a cloister for monks, for the idols, sacred ground, Ka’ba for the circling pilgrim, the tables of the Torah, the scrolls of the Quran. My creed is Love. Wherever its caravan turns along the way, that is my belief, my faith.

EROS – Ralph Waldo Emerson

The sense of the world is short, long and various the report, to love and be beloved. Men and gods have not outlearned it, and how oft soe’er they’ve turned it, ‘Tis not to be improved.

LIFE IS FINE – Langston Hughes

I went down to the river, I set down on the bank. I tried to think but couldn’t, so I jumped in and sank. I came up once and hollered! I came up twice and cried! If that water hadn’t a-been so cold, I might’ve sunk and died. But it was Cold in that water! It was cold! I took the elevator, sixteen floors above the ground. I thought about my baby and thought I would jump down. I stood there and I hollered! I stood there and I cried! If it hadn’t a-been so high, I might’ve jumped and died. But it was High up there! It was high! So since I’m still here livin’, I guess I will live on. I could’ve died for love, but for livin’ I was born, though you may hear me holler, and you may see me cry, I’ll be dogged, sweet baby, if you gonna see me die. Life is fine! Fine as wine! Life is fine!
