Nothing is ever created in a vacuum, everything you see or hear or read or sense, helps build the poems within you. So fill you mind with poetry.

Go to the library and get out some poetry collections, it may take you awhile to find the poets you get on with and be prepared that whom you like reading maybe completely different from the sort of poems you like to write.

I personally find going to poetry readings much more enjoyable than reading the poems out of a book, the authors voices bring the poems to life for me. There are also lots of youtube videos of poetry performances both old and new, which are well worth the explore!

If you are anything like me, you will find that once you fill yourself up, poetry, new vivid, excited poetry, started to leak out of you.
