Rather than finding inspiration from a traditional prompt, photo, or words, reflect on what inspires you. Is it a person, place, or thing? Is it something you do? Maybe it’s something you read, watch, or play. Whatever your inspiration, describe it through verse in this poem writing prompt.
I wrote about this very thing a few years ago after reading a couple of books that made me push myself to write after at time away. Finding a new book to love pushes me to become a better writer.
Inspiration on Brain-cation
Lost in purchased imagery
of foreign sights and sounds
past thoughts silently suppressed.
A flow of words across the eye
of people, places, and emotions. A
moving picture of the mind.
Hands anchor and trade
with fingers at the ready to
thumb through to new realities.
Thoughts race at contemplation of motive,
an anticipation of twist
perhaps I knew it all along.
Such daily relaxation forever cheap
to pick up my own pen and take a leap.
