Man, I’ve just realised how much I love making lists – ha! It makes me feel organised and like I’ve got my life in order. Anyway, I love writing poetry but sometimes have trouble thinking what to talk about, so if you have the same problem here are a few prompts that may help get you going:
❊ Origin – who are you? Where are you from?
❊ Green – write about something green, whether it’s an emotion you feel, an object or a place you associate with the colour.
❊ Lost and found.
❊ Polar opposites.
❊ Love and hate.
❊ Myths and fairy tales.
❊ Zoo – wild people, animals.
❊ Masks – hidden identity? Hidden emotions? A safe space?
