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!:)

I'm Black on Destee, I feel at home! It's been a while! Soooo in 2004 I married my Senegalese Husband, when I first went to Senegal, I loved, it! The people were hospitable and my husband's family was very kind! Well I've been there many times now, have taken African Americans, well over 150 and it has been an amazing experience!
