Poetry Prompts Day 18 - OctPoWriMo 2016

Hello again! Let's get right to it today - 

The Prompt: 
There's so much going on the the world today where the word "senseless" would apply. Take a few minutes to free write about things you find to be senseless. Or perhaps you've experienced being "senseless" as described in this Huffington Post article. (I have and it was GLORIOUS!)

Sensory Deprivation Tank
Word Prompts:

Suggested Poetic Form: Free Verse

Music For Your Muse:

The Muppets - Manah Manah

The Beatles - Ob La Di Ob La Da

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):


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
