- And other prompt resources that may inspire the pandemic poet in you:
- Google “poetry prompts”
- Or, better yet, just grab a pen and your journal, or the palm of your hand, or your computer, and make a list of what you’re experiencing, feeling, wondering, fearing, enjoying, praying for, etc. during the pandemic, on walks, while you’re reading, gardening, cooking, masking and gloving up and down, staring blankly into space.
Poems often come to us when we’re doing mundane, quotidian things, often as a word or phrase at first, or maybe a question, then they begin to shape themselves in terms of beats, sounds, images, maybe even metaphors, and so on. Rather like a jigsaw puzzle at times. Or a painting or sculpture.
