How exciting a thread that states its only '8 minutes ago'! :P
Interesting question. I tend to write observational poetry, so as long as I have my senses, I am okay for material. When I say senses, I mean it, all 5, or more if we care to debate. lol
Another way that I find is to write acrostics. Many people say these are easy, and for the most part they are, but if you ask 10 people to write one, using the same word, you'll find 10 very different poems. So, my advice is to write an acrostic, it is amazing how the subconscious mind reveals itself in them without you trying. I wrote an acrostic sonnet the other day, so the world is your oyster.
I hope this helps.
