One of the purposes of poetry is to tell stories.
Today’s prompt is both simple and familiar.
Remember the beginning of every fairy tale?
Once Upon a Time… is your prompt and
the traditional ending -
..." and they lived happily ever after" may now become whatever you please.
.. "and they….(fill in the ending of your choice.)"
You may begin with the actual words and end with the actual words OR you may decide this is a prompt you just can’t get into and move along to a different theme entirely.
You may also elect to use the image prompts to further stir your creative pot. All of these images are in the public domain so feel free to use to your heart's content!
Share your poetry with us by linking up. Make sure you visit your neighbors one or two before and after. If you are last on the list go back to the beginning of the list. If you are the first few on the list please go back to the day before and visit the last on the list if you haven't already. Have fun!
