Creativity Project Year Two-Day 18

I gave a friend of mine a prompt, and then decided I would use it as well:

I used the prompt at Wordsmith Studio to help generate the following poem:

An Absolute Moment

I reckon I should
Have known better than to bring
It up, but maybe
I was just running my mouth
Without much actual thought.

I deserved the jab
I suppose, despite attempts
To explain myself,
She said I should be able
To rise early once a week.

Sunday morning is
A time I hardly ever
Manage to awake
Before missing Sunday School,
She said I should try harder.

My excuses did
Not mean anything to her
And her opinion
Should really have no meaning
To me, yet I find it does.

Maybe I will get
Myself up again before
The breaking of dawn
So I can once more attend
My church on Sunday morning.

I am grateful:

1.   I woke up around 11:00 this morning despite going to bed at 3:00.
2.   I was asked to write a poetry prompt for Wordsmith Studio once a month.
3.   Mom ate some of the grits I bought for her last week.
4.   We have soap and warm water in which to wash dishes.
5.   Our freezer and refrigerator preserve food for our meals.

This has been an extremely enjoyable Saturday for me. I hope your day has been relaxing and refreshing. You can take a few moments to engage your imagination and produce something creative. You may find working like this gives you a great deal of satisfaction. I know it enriches my days.

As a prompt, incorporate some or all of the phrase- He wished he loved her as much as the dog did…- into your poem, story, or journal entry. I know this prompt has already helped generate two stories, so it might also help you. If you use this prompt, please leave a link to your work in the comments below.

    JoAnn I love the story in your journal. What a mess that fellow has made in his life! I also really enjoyed your time prompt poem. We’re lucky to belong to WSS and have such lovely companionship and inspiration, aren’t we? 🙂
