Where do you get your ideas for poems?

I get ideas for new poems from all over the place, from people I meet, places I visit and also from small objects you could find anywhere, like a blade of grass, or a small stone, or a shell or even the skull of a sheep similar to this one I found on the North York Moors and I was able to turn it into a new poem. This is a very short poem in a particular form called a Haiku:

Sheep's Skull Whitened and toothless, discovered in a damp ditch. A trophy for home. from Morning Break and other poems (Cambridge University Press, 1989), copyright © Wes Magee 1989, used by permission of the author and the publisher
