What Shall I Write About?

Start with the obvious, the wallpaper,
designs of flowers, purple dead nettles
that I saw near Port Jervis
climbing the scenic route hills and valleys
is it a real wildflower, only on disturbed
ground or manmade disturbance I picked
one no one knew so the magic mirror
the Internet purple flower New Jersy photo
please and so many purple flowers
maps with green spots,
start with the basics.

This is great, I really like it. It's sort of like a prose. Good job :)
I love this poem...I think what I am trying to do is just write, no rewriting, no revision, straight, and I'm trying to keep it simple, the obvious joys, joys at arms length not Romantic stuff: exotic dark gothic vampires, not the conservative Romantic stuff, but more like Shelley and Whitman. Thank you.
