April 28, 2018: Poetry Writing Prompt – LB Sedlacek

This poetry writing prompt submitted by LB Sedlacek:

Wake Up Poem using Meditative Words and Images:  Sit in a quiet comfortable place to do a short meditation.   Close your eyes.  Imagine your body has a form.  It could be anything:  a favorite pet, a painting you like, a certain season or time of the year.  Continue to sit and let the image resonate throughout your thoughts.  Take slow deep breaths and just let your mind be quiet.  You can do this in just a few minutes.  Take enough time to slow down, be alone with your thoughts and simply visualize.  Next make the image you have visualized concrete.  Use your tablet, or pen & paper, or colored pencils or even crayons and paper and simply draw what you see.  Don’t worry if you aren’t artistically inclined.  You simply want a visual to work with.  Next step is to write about your image on paper. Let the image tell you about you, how it sees you, creating a dialogue with the image.  Let the image raise any emotion or not that you feel towards it.  Write about your image using any kind of form you want and don’t forget use of space, line breaks to complete your words and thoughts and overall poem.
