The Best Poetry Prompts for “Non-Writers”

Just released: “Chemical reactions” j.r. Graham free to borrow amazon prime

Skin is a Language

Hey, writers. How many times have you heard a classmate, friend, or acquaintance say “I don’t really write?” And yes, they always seem to pose it as a question. Because it is one! Everyone is a writer, remember? Everyone can write something beautiful, the only difference being that it comes easier for some more than others. So, I’ve picked some great prompts for the “non-writers” to help bring the team together.

“The Red Wheelbarrow” by William Carlos Williams

url

so much depends
upon

a red wheel
barrow

glazed with rain
water

beside the white
chickens.

William Carlos Williams found meaning and importance in the red wheelbarrow. What everyday, non-living object do you depend on? What depends on you? Why is it important to you? Why are you dependent on it?

Jon Sands is a genius, by the way. A prompt a la him:

We toss the wrappings
of our meaning
let them fall where they may
not our responsibility
to keep this world clean
the real world, I mean.

Poetic Tuesday #013 – Mystified Moonlight

Just released: “Chemical reactions” j.r. Graham free to borrow amazon prime

Caleb Yates

Possible looniness
Delirium waking bliss,
Scripted minds escaped reality,
Plunge into dreamscape mentality.

I calculate costs and if sacrifice be,
why do we suffer for small moments of peace…

Mystified moonlight created by man,
A glance from a stranger with no place to stand.
Blood veined leaves among whispering trees,
To create that stillness inside summers breeze.

Describing the poem:
The first poem was from a sleepless night.
The second poem is from decision making with God.
The last has been a favoriteof many, of friends, and of family.
I received so much positive feedback from it!
The words are really savory upon the tongue.

So I know I should be doing homework, but guess what guys? I finished another novel by J.D. Robb instead, and yes this is part of the series I know you simply cannot wait for me to talk about. It has simply been so long since I last wrote a review I may be a little off on this…or maybe not. Here is a brief synopsis of the novel provided by Goodreads (I do love that website): In New York City in 2059, someone is pursuing missing gems from a decades-old heist…someone who’s willing to kill for them. Sharp-witted and sexy, NYPSD Lieutenant Eve Dallas is used to traveling in the shadowy corners outside the law. And in a future where crime meets cutting-edge technology, she will attempt to track down the diamonds once and for all-and stop the danger and death that have surrounded them for years.

I quite…

Now that I’ve talked about that I can get into why I’ve been too busy to post. It’s been a hell of a week. Pretty much non-stop over the weekend, and it won’t be letting up until Wednesday night. Even now I’m writing this post from my Anatomy class. NaNoWriMo start in 3 days, and. I’m pretty much freaking out. My story is ready, I know the plot, the characters, and the backstory, but what I can’t work around is having very little time to work. Over the next few weeks it’s pretty much test after test, essay after essay, for me. I’m going to…

Kuarto is Heather’s twin brother and he’s sharing their intimacy. It interferes with his work but it never happened when he was working before…

Kuarto headed back to the truck. Placing his gear in the bed of his vehicle, he turned and waited for Toki. The way she worked with that girl while he was gone was wonderful. She joined him a few moments later. “Aswee?”

“I know, she wanted a name and that was all I could come with.”

He opened the passenger door for her. “Hope you don’t mind but the next stop is a bit tricky to get to so I’d rather drive.”

“That’s fine.” She climbed into the cab. “Maybe I could drive again later?”

“I should be able to arrange that as long as we can keep to the schedule I have set.” He started it up and headed toward the mountains that loomed ahead…

Sense and Sensibility

 

cover

>> Read Here <<

 

Sense and Sensibility was very famous novel. ‘The more I know of the world, the more am I convinced that I shall never see a man whom I can really love. I require so much!’

Marianne Dashwood wears her heart on her sleeve, and when she falls in love with the dashing but unsuitable John Willoughby she ignores her sister Elinor’s warning that her impulsive behaviour leaves her open to gossip and innuendo. Meanwhile Elinor, always sensitive to social convention, is struggling to conceal her own romantic disappointment, even from those closest to her. Through their parallel experience of love—and its threatened loss—the sisters learn that sense must mix with sensibility if they are to find personal happiness in a society where status and money govern the rules of love.
