I LIKE THE PROMPTS put out by Poet's and Writer's Magazine.  Today...browse through your collection of photos, choose an image and write a poem inspired by it.  Being an Aries, to me that means, "NOW"!  And finish it immediately.  My DNA demands it.  Why not try it?


Remember when I was more
than a silhouette,
not yet a specter?
You'd call my name
and I'd come to you.

Suddenly there'd be heat in the room,
we knew where it was going.

The walls
accompanied our sighs
with a drumbeat,

a hit song once again, perfect.

From that wired dimension
I danced along the divides,

enclosed by trickery,
not suspicious
that I had started to sift,

so unaware that my home
had always been an hourglass.

That is about as good a definition of creativity as I have seen in a long time.

Nicely done. Photos often prompt words from me as well, especially haiku.

If you like photo prompts, I have one every week and everyone is welcome to join in the fun: Monday Morning Photo Prompt
