Where To Get Poem Ideas?

Have a question? Agree, disagree,
with me? Leave me your opinion.

Poem Ideas From Life

You are the fun ingredient in
family gatherings, picnics or
the elevator ride. It means the
"stuff" of great poems exist
in you. Don't stop at throwing
lines out at people.

Sit down. Expose activities in
life, the work-place, college
living, loss of a job, events
during the economic turn-down
or how a specific bank treated
you.

Point a poem at people, places,
or the happiest/strangest day
in your life.

Several people passed an area
without seeing it. A twenty-dollar
bill grabbed your feet the moment
you entered. Happiest day?
Strangest?

Poems of pets

flutter

hoof

wiggle

paw

to life.

Pets have been around all
your life. A house-hold of
various pets? What could you
say about them? The potential
for such poems to bring
laughter, inspire, are only
limited by your imagination.

The first person to enter your
space is a possible subject,
poem. Perhaps, something
about that person is poem
friendly.

Book characters are ready to
be picked for poems. Characters
from those books shouldn't
resemble the originals unless
you created them.

Tons of information, online
and off, stand-ready to provide
poems.

Pieces of data learned, history
or experiment to see what works
equals excellent poems.

Take a look at my poem in prose.
Prose is language that's not
metrically structured.

B owing to his country's needs

E ndowed with many talents

N oticed for his advice on Declaration of Independence

J ourneyed aboard quieting disputes

A nother giant of a man

M uch of his time taken away from his land

I n service of man-kind

N ow, his works lives on

Material for poems are everywhere. Simply,
open-up your senses.

About Me

My photo

Marcella Glenn is a freelance writer who has written news reports, worked in an office, reviewed movies, published a newsletter and had her novel, "Grave Street House," published. She, too, is a Writing Consultant as well as a Personal Coach.


She has tried to go down some of life's other paths. A few paths were a mail-order business, the publishing of a pen-pal newsletter and selling plastic-ware. Only, she was back writing before realizing what she was doing.


She'd critique titles, paragraphs, news reports, that no one submitted to her. She'd stop herself, eventually. Marcella Glenn seemed to be enjoying the act of writing. This is how she knew writing was more than a hobby.


Let it be a lesson in your life too. Is writing calling your name? Or, acting? Teaching? Are you interested in engineering? Have the courage to go for your dreams. Simply, believe in yourself.
