Visual Prompt: A Reader’s Prayer

We’ve all been there, pen in hand, waiting for a poem to arrive. Poetry prompts are a great way to get the juices flowing on those inevitable days when a poem doesn’t show up.

Look at the visual prompt of the woman with books. Does it spark any ideas? Write a poem in any form (free verse, rhyme, acrostic, etc.). Feel free to leave your prompted poem in the comments below (scroll way down).

  1. Here I lay, with book in hands. Far away from life’s demands.
    Other adventures I have had, surround me as I lie in bed.
    A new adventure on every page, a place to go at any age.

    1. Barbi, I love this! Thank you for sharing. And, yes, I love how books give us a way to adventure without physically leaving home (especially important right now during the pandemic!).
