What did you wish lasted forever? What has lasted until now? What does your future look like? Write from your life’s perspective.
Alternatively, write a poem about either nothing, a last poem or a forever poem.
This is the last prompt from the P.E.O.D. further instructions will be posted soon.
Write a tribute poem to someone who had meant a great deal to your development, either personal or poetic. Perhaps a favored poet.
Alternatively, write a tribute about someone famous.
We’ve all heard of words to live by. Either a profound quote, or a motivating article. Maybe a parent or grandparent has given you good advice once. What was that advice you received that has held great significance to you? Use that as your inspiration for your poem.
Alternatively, sage is a spice. Write a poem to spice up your life that contains the name of a spice in the title.
Example: Running Out of Thyme
Things have a way of going off course or changing direction. Either by choice or design. Sort of the reason today’s prompt was delayed as badly as it has. Having issues from surgery. But as a wise woman has told me, we’ll survive. Today, write your “road not taken” poem.
Sorry for the late post. 🙂
Did you, do you have a hobby? Do you have an affinity for a special skill? Please share it.
Alternatively, write about any kind of hobby that you might find interesting.
What was your favorite subject in school? Any school, any grade, write about what piqued your interest whenever that was.
Tradition is not the worship of ashes, but the preservation of fire. ~Gustav Mahler
How do you preserve the fire? What tradition (if any) do you hold dear?
Alternatively, find a quote that inspires you and write to that!
Does something from your past come back to haunt you? Have you heard strange noises or felt haunted in the night? Had bad dreams? Told “ghost” stories? Had a “Bad Penny” moment where it just wouldn’t go away? A memory that lingers and you can’t put your finger on? Exorcise that ghost!
Alternatively, write a “ghost” poem.
Tomorrow I have surgery scheduled that hopefully will rectify the issues with which I’ve dealt for the past two years. Since no P.E.O.D prompt is schedule for tomorrow, hopefully I’ll be up and around to participate for the Friday offering. Either way, I’ll keep up when I can. And when you do, speak of me kindly! 😉
Were you headstrong and confrontational in your youth? Now? Were (are) you a rebel? What was it that triggered your resistance? What did you rebel against? How did you?
Alternatively, “Rebel, Rebel” was the title of a David Bowie song. Search his other titles and see if one would inspire you as the title of one of your poems and write it. See a partial listing below:
Love You Til Tuesday
The Man Who Sold The World
What was the scariest thing (moment) you had encountered in your life? Poem your story, give us a chill!
Alternatively, write about something that is scary. Maybe a phobia someone may have, or a movie that had you off the edge of your seat. I’m afraid of heights. That’s scary to me. So is struggling with a writer’s bottleneck. Write something and don’t be scared. We don’t bite… much!
