I would say the best poetry comes from "truth".

Now, this could be the actual truth as perceived or observed by the poet or those with influence over the poet.

Another truth could be arrived at by the poet creating a situation in his, her or its mind and totally immersing him/her/itself in that situation to derive the truth that would be.

And that's quite enough deep philosophy for a post-work, pre-bath Colin!

the mind of an artist and the heart of a poet

Those with the mind of a artist can find beauty in every sight, and those with the heart of a poet can feel the beauty in each emotion.

Not that I would know

I am very surprised that no one said this...it comes from that indescribable entity we call the "muse". When mine's gone, I can't write worth a darn...and it's gone now.

Sven,

I just don't know...I I I can't describe it, and how can I ever get it back if I don't REALLY know exactly what it is???

Sven,

I can "feel" that it's GONE...gone...gone...
and I haven't been able to write anything lately that even I like.

The best poetry comes for someone who pours the heart into there work and has the courage to let other see it.

i think the best poetry comes from observance of nature,nature poetry to me is some of the most soul-ish...that and the poetry of misery as Christopher mentions for the same reason,it goes into the soul and miserable dark poetry people seem to THINK alot,about life and everything,sometimes rosey and cheery seems fake and superficial,but dark is always from the soul and the deepest darkest hallways in the mind.

I'll agree that sometimes rosy and cheery seems that way. . . they can. . . but, is dark always from the soul and the mind?  Can't it too, be fake and superficial???

I like what Irie said too. . . the best poets read and learn from other poets and take those influences and ideas and make them their own. . . wonderful!!

I think it comes from a place inside us.......emotions play a key role in what I write......any kind of emotion.....and from dreams.........or the lack there of...........I think the best comes from your own experiences.......things you know......things you feel.....it can be a process of healing or venting......letting go or holding on..........I think it's very personal to each person.......I never can write, just to write......it has to be what I'm feeling.......that can be directly influenced by what someone I love is feeling too.........it affects me. That's my 2 cents worth SEA

YES!! Dark poetry can be superficial!! The darkness has it's own set of much over used clich廥,but i do feel that Darker poetry does deal with deeper more often hidden corners,which makes it sincere....when it is really a serious bit of poetry.

Have to agree with Chris here - Misery is the best muse, far and away.

Fair enough, misery works, isn't the saying "the sweetest songs are sung with breaking hearts" or somesuch..?

I have written some of my better poetry while miserable, but I do have to say that quite a few of the pieces that everyone enjoyed were not inspired by misery, but rather by longing. I suppose in one way that could be construed as misery (especially if you don't get what you were longing after LOL), but I think a good portion of what I wrote was under duress from sensations of extreme giddiness and, dare I say it, hope.

I might also point out that many of the pieces which are considered "masterpieces" of poetry have anything but misery as their source: what about "The Road Not Taken" by Frost..? Reminiscent, yes, but miserable..? Hardly. "Ozzymandius?" Humorous, even.

Anyway ... hehe

(Just had to disagree with Michael LOL)

Hmmmm ... the best poetry comes from LIFE! each experience we have be it good or bad whether it makes us happy or sad ... each poem written is an expression of human emotion captured in words

One glass of blackberry brandy
A steaming bubble bath
6 vanilla scented candles lit
*And a light dusting of love


*Hope and dreams can be substituted when necessary.

The best poetry comes from the subconscious and outer forces while in a state of openness.
