Poets on the Page Prompt - Direction - January 6, 2014
Here we are, writing poetry in the first week of the New Year. I had to ask myself this morning, "Is the first week gone yet?"
So much has happened I feel like it should be May.
I do know that if I simply get back up, dust myself off, and take steps in the direction I am called the rest will take care of itself.
This week we will use the theme of "Direction" - you may take that in a multitude of places (I almost said directions!)
I think of maps, GPS devices, lost and found goodies, playing red light and green light as a child.... the possibilities are endless.
Take a few moments to brainstorm a list to create the beginning of possible themes for your direction poem.
I also offer a poem link to also serve as inspiration. Perhaps grab a line from the poem and use it as a prompt. Here is Finding the Direction by Stephen Dobbyns
As always, feel free to use the image as your poetry prompt as well.
I look forward to reading your words, as always.
