    When it comes to writing a poem, do you create a title first or the poem?

    alot of people start the poem 1st...

    It depends on the individual.

    also it depends what mood U are in...

    usually U base your poem on the mood you're in or whatever is on your mind..
    and it starts from there...

    some people can have a title and whatever emotion the title evokes/whatever comes 2 mind, that usually starts the words to become the poem.

    Thank you both...

    for sharing piece of your writing technique.

    Perhaps I am the poet oddball. Not all the time, but for the most part, I write from a title. Possibly it could be, because of my attraction to titles. Sometimes I enjoy them as much as the poem. Like, Infinite Thoughts, Timelessness, Another Time and Lost Jewels, just to name a few. They inspire!

    Anywhooo, thanks again for your input. Its appreciated, BIGTIME!:)

    writing from titles doesn't make you an oddball

    IT MAKES YOU BRILLIANT

    Do you plan to revisit those titles to write from them?

    Awww...


    Thats kind of you to say. Perhaps in another lifetime
    I'll feel that way, but thank you for believing in my poetry.
    I'm very passionate about it... in fact, poetry period!

    you know my poetry is from the source energy

    it would be extremely hard for me to write, without feeling it from a spiritual source

    so i would say NO

    ain't gonna happen cap'n

    I feel you So'ja...

    There are times I have to be moved to write too. One thing about being moved to write,
    its like a high rushes over you and out pours the flow. Well, that's how it feels to me.:)
    I enjoy that feeling a lot! AnyWhooo...



    Be Blessed!
