Writing a poem with Ivan.

Writing poetry means looking within yourself and observing the world around you carefully. A poem can be about anything from love to loss or a rusty old barn door. Thinking about writing poetry can be a little scary, especially if you feel like you're not creative enough or don't have enough ideas to write poetry. With the right motivation and approach, you can write a poem that you'll happily share with everyone in your class or with your friends. 

1. Practice writing: A poem can start with just a short stanza, a line or two that comes out of nowhere, or even an image that won't go away from your mind. You can also find inspiration for yourself simply by practicing writing and using the world around you. Once you've found an inspiration, you can shape your thoughts into a poem. 

2.Find inspiration from your environment, or from those close to you: There is inspiration all around you to write a good poem, even if you haven't seen it yet. See all of your memories, situations, and moments as the subject of poetry that exists for you, and you too will begin to see poetry in everything around you.

3.Choose a specific theme or idea: You can start writing your poem by focusing on a specific theme or idea that you find interesting or funny. When writing poetry, choosing a specific theme or idea to focus on gives your poem a clear goal or purpose. This makes it easier for you to understand what kind of images and descriptions to use in your poem. 

4.Choose a poetic form: Let your creativity shine, by choosing a poetic form for your poem. There are lots of different poetry forms you can use, ranging from free verse to short poetry. If you want, you can choose an easy poetic form like free verse or you can choose a form that is a little challenging, like a short story. Choose a poetic form and stick to its structure so that your poem sounds consistent to the reader. 

5.Read examples of poems. To get a better understanding of what other poets write, it's important to look at examples of poems. You have to read exactly the type of poetic form on which you want to write a poem or read poems related to the theme or ideas that inspire you. You can also choose poems that are well-known and categorized as “classics” to get a better idea of ​​the genre. 

6. Use concrete imagery: Avoid abstract imagery and focus on concrete descriptions of people, places, and things in your poem. You should always describe anything using your five senses: smell, taste, touch, sight and sound. Using such concrete imagery will immerse the readers of your poem into the world of your poem and, for them, the imagery will come alive. 

6. Incorporate literary devices (figures): Literary devices, such as metaphors and similes, add variety and depth to your poem. Using such tips will make your poem unique and will also give a comprehensive picture to the readers. Try using these literary devices in your poem, and keep changing them, so you don't just have to use similes or metaphors while writing.
