April 23, 2019: Poetry Writing Prompt – Michelle Angelini

This poetry writing prompt submitted by Michelle Angelini

Have you ever heard a sound and it brings back a very good memory? Something like wind chimes, taiko drums, a bird singing or gentle, rolling thunder at night? Pick a sound, then relate it in a poem to  something in nature or to a memory completely unrelated to the sound heard. It could be in nature, children, an event, like a concert or cultural one. Even though using sound for the prompt, the poem can also include any of the five senses.

Example:

The Stream

Breezes ruffle the wind chimes;

it is water over rocks – the stream where she stopped

over forty years ago driving into the mountains<span class=”Apple-converted-space”> </span>

from San Bernardino.

The tree leaves speak to her.

If you write a poem from this prompt, post it as a comment underneath the prompt in the Poetry Super Highway Facebook Group.
