How To Write A Poem

  1.  Start with a short sentence about something that struck your core being.
  2. Write a second sentence about that experience and find a word that rhymes with it that you will want to use in line 4.
  3. Say another something about the experience that struck you core being.
  4. Figure out another sentence that flows into the rhyming word you have picked from sentence number two.
  5. This usually will flow into a thought for your second stanza, where you will repeat steps 1-4.
  6. Repeat the process until you reach a punchline at the end. You may have three, four, five stanza’s or more by the time you are finished.
  7. Sign your name and date it.  It’s fun to go back through and see what you wrote when.
  8. Try it for yourself.  You may find it fun.

  1. How interesting, Teresa Marie!
    What I often do is write words in a piece paper about a feeling, experience, or thought. I cut them and crinkle them. Then I pick a few papers… and whatever words I have, I use to make verses or stanzas.

    I will definitely try your method.
    Sounds great!

    By the way, I am a TW but don’t make to the tribe often enough. I am glad I connected with you today.

    Blessings of Love and Joy, always!
