Actually used a prompt today. I don’t like using prompts most of the time because I’m too rebellious and when people say “write a poem about this, that or the other” I end up thinking “no, I don’t want to!”
But today’s prompt was to open a book at random and pick out three words and then use them to create a poem. There was more but being me I elected to ignore the rest! The book I choose was “To The Lighthouse” by Virginia Woolf and the phrase I picked out was “early morning hour”.
Title – Early Morning Hour
Cold blue light seeps into the world
In this early morning hour.
Nothing sings but the birds;
People lie cradled in their beds,
The day lies before us like a clean slate.
Wake now for the day has come,
And this could be the day
You leap into being.
