GYUKICS GABOR
it has nothing to do with 
(in memoriam Ira Cohen)
say farewell to all the previous notions walk among sleeping crocodiles towards the center of colors not withstanding to the magnetism of mysteries below the crowds of nothing under the skies of unnamed entities along the chords of the infinite circle with silent lips with goggled eyes with storming calmness inside your skull your defenseless cells lead your invisible steps across the forbidden zone yellow fog feeds your leftover body

VAL MAGNUSON
Morning Dance
She slipped silently in Stepping flamenco whirls Tambourine sky ribbons trembling Clicking her heels Dancing tafetta colors across the heavens China tea cups shattering With castinet rhythms Glazing the firmament with patches of light Captivity captured with masterful flight Eager, trembling audience, I Attempted creation remembering, her- From nowhere to nowhere Along these thin, grey lines Of her majestic dance Across the sky-

Systematic Poetry Techniques


Do you ever stare at the paper, waiting for poetic inspiration? Well, you can stop waiting and start using systematic techniques for creating poetry. If it seems too mechanical or artificial at first, don't worry. The point is just to get you writing, because creativity is stimulated by work.

When You Have A Poem In Mind

If you have your topic, ask yourself why it's important then write down your answer. How do you feel about it? Write down those feelings. Write a line or a scene that exemplifies what you are trying to point out. Then, start rearranging the words into a poem.

The main thing is to do anything other than waiting to stimulate your creativity. Sometimes poems can come from a simple description. Write down a description of an event, and then find a way to form it into something more succinct and poetic.

When You Need Ideas For Poems

1. Look around and write down what you see.

2. Write about anything that you felt today.

3. Ask anyone for a topic and start writing.

4. Use random words, one per line, to create a verse.

Poets can break through the worst writers-block, by simply using any "tricks" available to start writing poems. Try it.

Even very artificial, or "mechanical" techniques will get your creativity flowing.
