Word Prompt as Creation Story– Day 19 #NaPoWriMo #amwriting

Day 19 Writing Prompt: And now for our daily prompt (optional, as always!). Today, I’d like to challenge you to write a poem that recounts a creation myth. It doesn’t have to be an existing creation myth, or even recount how all of creation came to be. It could be, for example, your own take on the creation of ball-point pens, or the discovery of knitting. Your myth can be as big or small as you would like, as serious or silly as you make it.

Word Prompt as Creation Story

From a word prompt, an idea births, inviting phrases

joining sentences, combined into lines or paragraphs

until fragments fuse, a story shaped, mushroomed

from a single word, startling the author who never

imagined the consequence of that word in his brain.
