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.
