Poetry Prompts - Picture's Worth A Thousand Words

I'm keeping this one short.

With everything that has been going on this last week here in the U.S., I thought today we could write a poem around the photo below, after all, they say a picture is worth a thousand words.

Poetry Prompts - Poets on the Page

The first instrument I ever played I believe was the recorder in school. There might have been other instruments when I was in Kindergarten but I really don't remember. In the fifth grade I moved up to drums, I loved playing the drums. In Junior High I played the flute, I wasn't ever really good at it but I enjoyed it.

When I was a young adult I began playing around with hand drums, absolutely love them. Now I play the Native American flute and my granddaughters often ask me to play for them at bedtime.

Poetry Prompts Day 31 - OctPoWriMo 2016

OctPoWriMo year five is coming to a close. I'm so glad you took this journey with us. I hope you will come back during the year and play with your words until you breathe life into them!

Day 31 Prompt: Eternal

When I think of eternal, I think there isn't much that is eternal, at least not on this earth. When I wrote this prompt, I believe I was thinking how even though OctPoWriMo is coming to an end, our words are forever - what we wrote during this month and beyond. What does eternal mean to you? 

Suggested poetry type: What new poetry type did you enjoy learning the most this month? Choose your favorite poetry type from this month and write your heart onto the page.

Word Prompts:

eternity
light at the end of the tunnel (I know that's a lot of words:)
open door
bright light
heartfelt

Remember to let your inner child come out to play.

Music for your Muse:





Thanks so much for playing along with us at Poets on the Page for our fifth annual OctPoWriMo, we hope to see you throughout the year and for OctPoWriMo 2017.


Peace from both of us,

Poetry Prompts Day 26 - OctPoWriMo 2016

My dear poetic friends,
First off, let me apologize to those of you eagerly awaiting the prompt on Sunday. UNDOUBTEDLY, something went wrong on my end and I let it get by me. My husband and I spent the weekend continuing with cleanup and inventory for insurance after Hurricane Matthew. Things are still nowhere near back to "normal" (whatever that is), but we have shelter, food, transportation, and each other. I am blessed. 

Now on to today's prompt!

Image by John Hain
What does "abandonment" mean to you? The above image shows it as a negative cycle. I can tell you that as an adoptee, I deal with abandonment issues all the time. However, there are ways to view this word in a positive way. There is a group on Facebook that is dedicated to spreading joy around the world through free art. Check out the Art Abandonment public group, if you're interested in sharing your own art!



Word Prompts:
abandonment
desertion
relinquished
left
disbanded

Suggested Poetic Form: Perhaps an Epitaph would be a fun way to look at this word!

Music For Your Muse: 

Kelly Clarkson - Piece by Piece


Five Finger Death Punch - Diary of a Deadman

Poetry Prompts Day 25 - OctPoWriMo 2016

I can't believe we are in the last week of OctPoWriMo, it always goes by so fast. I hope you've enjoyed writing your poems this month and are stilling hanging in there to the end.

Day 25 Prompt: Red


When I was growing up I extremely disliked the color red, not sure if the fact I had red hair had anything to do with it or not. It wasn't until a few years back that I started to enjoy red and now I love it. I completely embrace red! How about you? Love it? Hate it? Don't feel anything about it?

I have always enjoyed big red barns though, I think it is because my great grandparents lived/owned/worked on their ranch with a big red barn and farmhouse. I loved having family gatherings out there.

Here are a couple of other things that I love that are red;

Possibilities:

Free write for ten minutes about the color red and see what comes up for you. Childhood memories or...?

Suggested poetry type: Harrisham Rhyme


Word Prompts:

dark
tantalizing
sensations
tempting
taste-buds

(Okay so those words are some of my feelings around red, you can choose those or make up your own.)

Happy Writing!

Poetry Prompts Day 20 - OctPoWriMo 2016

I'm enjoying my new job but I miss reading more of your poems. I haven't worked at a regular job in years and it is definitely taxing but I feel good about it. I'm trying to stay positive about the fact that it is taking so long to make a living from writing. For now it is going to have to be a part time endeavor.

On a super positive note, I was able to get my car fixed today which has been out of commission for several weeks. Yay!

How is your month going? Anything new and interesting?


Photo courtesy of PublicDomainPictures.net by Petr Kratochvil

Day 20 Prompt: White


Possibilities:

White has so many connotations, white flag, white hat - hero in the old west movies, white - purity, white - clean, white light, white clouds, and the list could go on. What is the first thing that comes to mind when you think of white? Start from there and write for ten minutes.

Suggested poetry type: Tetractys

Word Prompts:

purity
hero
clean
light
energy

I love trees, all types of trees, especially gnarly unusual trees. I even wrote a short story about a tree on my blog years ago - Essence of Life. I've been known to hug trees, sit below them and write and of course take lots and lots of photos of them.

Trees are necessary for our very existence on this earth, they produce the air we breathe. We build houses with them and create many products that we use everyday with them.

Suggested poetry type: Ode

Forest
Sapling
Seedling
Woods

Remember, our prompts are only suggestions, where you find inspiration for your poetry is up to you.
During OctPoWriMo, if you want to make sure that we know you have written something new, comment in that day's post with your link to your blog and/or share your link on Twitter with the hashtag, #OctPoWriMo.
If you would like to leave an active link in the comments:

<a href = "your link">your title</a>

You have to put the link to your post (same link you would put in the comment section) in the, "your link" space within the quotations and the title to your post in the, your title, space.

Our link would look like this:

<a href="https://poetsonthepage.blogspot.com/">OctPoWriMo</a>

Once you hit publish on your comment it would look like this (only with the name of your post):

OctPoWriMo

I hope that helps. You don't have to do this, it is only if you would like to make your link an active link.

Remember to visit two or more OctPoWriMo participants and leave encouraging and supportive words along the way.



I wish you words,
Amy McGrath
