Poetry Prompts

Have you ever heard of the Piccadilly? I've recently purchased one of their books, titled, "Write the Poem," and within it's contents, each page offers a new prompt to write a poem about. I want to start shifting our Tuesday Verse to poems created from these prompts, and I challenge you to write along with me. I'll start at the first page, and create a verse for each page following until we run out:


Prompt 1: The Ocean


In the moonlight, 

the ocean waves

glimmer like starlight,

in a galaxy full of whispers. 


One star to the other, 

"I see you,

you are not alone, 

although we are far apart."


I'd never felt so serene

as I did that night,

by the ocean. 


It was almost as if

the problems,

the hurt, 

that continuously made their mark

on my heart,

ceased to exist;

with just a single gaze

upon that dark, 

seemingly endless

water;

through it's subtle,

reassuring breeze. 


The sound

of those gentle waves

as they hit the damp sandy shore,

blocked out the noise

of overstimulation,

of worries,

burdened on me day-to-day

and made them small

as they are meant to be,

in the larger picture of things. 


I miss the night ocean.
