Robert Brewer’s Poetry Prompts
For today’s prompt, take the phrase “Seeking (blank),” replace the blank with a word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then, write your poem.
By John Yeo
Close the door to deaden distraction,
Empty the mind of intruding dross.
Follow a line of thought to the conclusion
Allow the free flow of thought to inspire
Branch into new areas of mystification.
Turn off the telephone, mute the TV,
Concentrate on a leaf, a page, or a tree.
That’s the quickest way to feel the shock
As you drift straight towards writer’s block.
Searching for Inspiration.
Shut the windows, stroke your forehead,
Rack your brains to release the muse.
You wish you had gone for a walk to release
The dammed up flow of blocked inspiration.
Switch your thoughts back to the mundane
Empty your head change direction again
When the computer freezes you turn it off,
Then re-start it again with renewed power.
