Inspiration is all that is needed for your message to be communicated but now most poet choose to check their dictionaries before writing a poem which is not suppose to your inspiration helps you to communicate even when those around you doesn't understand your diction for all must not be of same lingua franca use your inspiration as paramount and not your diction though it is necessary but not paramount.
Diction guides you on how to maneuver fiction but your inspiration is guide through the tunnel of realism,idealism and imagery,poetry is the activation of the educated sub-conscious you don't know so don't be surprise at what pops into your all you just do is write it down "those who are poet never plan to write it is write that plans them when they are inspired"
