January 2020 – Week 2 Writing Prompts
Inspiration Call: Micropoetry Monday
use this picture as inspiration for a micro poem (a short poem with no particular rules).
Inspiration Call: Talking Walls
What story would the walls in this building tell if they could speak? Tell us the story.
Inspiration Call: Word Prompt Wednesday: Great
Use the word of the day in poetic or short story form.
Inspiration Call: Street Signs
Take note of the words on signs and street names you pass while driving, walking, or riding the bus. Write a poem starting with one of these words you notice.
Inspiration Call: 7 Days, 7 Lines
Write a poem where each line/sentence is about each day of last week .
Inspiration Call: 6 Word Story
Tell the story behind this picture in just 6 words. A Six Word story is a challenge for each writer to come up with a short story within six words.
Inspiration Call: Unsent Letters
The purpose of the unsent letter is to discover what impetus motivated it – which you may not know at the beginning – and decide what you need to do next, having discovered the impetus. You may, for example, need to change some aspect of your active life. You may decide to use the unsent letter as the basis for a letter that you do send. You may discover unsent letters are excellent ways to finish business with people and events that are no longer a part of your life.
Write an unsent letter – You don’t need to know everything you’re going to say. Allow the letter to ramble and develop in your usual style.

Up atop this gentle giant
The sky is close to the touch
I dream and dream of reaching beyond
The visions in front of me are
Too compelling to leave.
Imagination is such a playful partner. Can you for a moment conjure such a sight where a little man with a funny hat sits so mysteriously upon his pachyderm? What could he, indeed, be thinking and what sort of adventures have they led.
What a ponderous plight
perched upon a pachyderm
are you perhaps
patrolling for purple parrots?
but they are a persnickerous pack
as they lack any sort of polite
parading past your pachyderm
clearly lacking permission or tact.

I missed you today, I missed you yesterday. I have missed you everyday since you went away. My heart breaks silently wishing for your return. I don’t know where you went or why you stay so far away, I only pray for your return. It is so lonely here, so bland. Life lacks color and vibrancy without your presence. I hold you in my heart, the way I remember you, full of life, full of love for me, where I never doubted you or our future. That is all I have to hold onto. Everything is so uncertain, so confusing, so sad. I am tired, am literally exhausted with this torment that I call life. It is time for a change, a change only I can make. I have to let you go. I have to say goodbye to what I had hoped for, for what I imagined and got carried away with in my mind. I have to grab hold tightly to the reality and make the best of what I have been given. Perhaps, that is a better future anyway, something real, something genuine, something tangible..not a fairytale that can never come true.
So, my dear love, I bid you a final aideu, tip my hat and walk away. I fair thee well.
blue woman riding a black elephant
riding a black elephant
in my wild dreams
harbingers of my doom
riding straight out of hell
emissary of the dark one
taking me to meet my fate
woman in haunted house
I find myself
in a dream
a haunted mansion
in a field
outside of town
I see a woman running
towards the mansion
is she real
or is she also a ghost
Greatness is a state of grace
Reflecting your inner soul
Every day the dream
All coming to your mind
That leads to inner greatness
wild mushroom village
eating wild mushrooms
picked in the forrest
along the mountains
in Sanchu Valley Korea
in the wild mushroom village
will I live forever
as I eat yet more super foods
trying to avoid
will cancer avoid taking me
I don’t know
all I know
is that eating wild mushrooms
might avoid such a fate
Sunday bloody Sunday time to make love
Monday day to reflect and plan
Tuesday day to get things done
Wednesday mid week hump day
Thursday day to bring it all together
Friday Day to go out have a drink
Saturday day to have fun wrap it all up
