Poetry Prompt: Getting Personal 

Painting by Astrid Bruning


My prompt at dVerse Poets Pub is up and it’s about writing a “personal ad” to collect your soul.

“Write a poem that only your intended audience will get. Show them who you are, not who you want the world to see. When I think of sample poems, Walt Whitman’s ‘Song of Myself’ immediately comes to mind as he declares to the world in (at the time) scandalous free verse the celebration of love for both nature and humanity and how they carnally and spiritually intertwine within him.”

To see the full prompt, visit dVerse, and feel free to join in the engagement. Prompt closes this Thursday, June 7 at 1pm Rocky Mountain Time.

You can also see my example, New Refrain.
