Exercise Wednesday: Poetry Prompt

October 10, 2012

This week, we’re doing something different. Peggy Miller will provide poetry prompts Saturday and Sunday morning at 7 am (that’s right, 7 am). Peggy has graciously provided us a poetry prompt this week, to help you get ready for the conference.

If you write poetry, please dig in. If you don’t write poetry, maybe this is your chance to start. Thanks, Peggy!

What inspires is being open to inspiration.  It seems to me that small-seeming goals are great for our techno-frenetic world.  With that in mind, write a tiny poem every day until the conference.  Three or four lines or so, not in a particular form. You might want to choose a tiny subject to stick with, such as newt or button.  If you can’t give it a few lines one day, then look it up on the internet and see if that gives you an idea.  The history of buttons!  This writing habit can be continued indefinitely.
You can look up a thousand prompts on the internet, but this one is my own.
