Poetry: Word Prompts Help Creativity

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Article Summary

Poetry: Word prompts help Creativity is an article about stumbling across a daily word challenge on Twitter.

It gives examples of a couple of poems written using a word prompt.

I will be providing a weekly word prompt on Hubpages.

I hope others use this word prompt and create a short poem or story. Then provide a link in the comments below.

Have fun & let the creative juices flow.

#vss365 Provides Daily Word Challenge on Twitter

On Twitter I stumbled across a daily challenge provided by #vss365.

Their official account is listed below in the link.

Each day a new word is provided challenging writers to be creative.

It is alot of fun to see what your imagination can stir up.

This also provides a pathway for you to meet other writers who enjoy writing poetry or other genre's.

In the next section, I have listed a couple of examples of one's I have written.

Word Prompt = River

#vss365

Prompt is #river


The winds of sorrow

carry my heart to the #river

where I feel your presence

erasing the chaotic moments of my day.


Word Prompt = Lost

Prompt is #Lost


Part of her soul drifts away,

#lost inside a dream,

frantically, she runs towards reality

drowning in an ocean of tears.


Hubpages Weekly Word Prompt = "Love"

I thought this might be fun to try on Hubpages.

Maybe not daily, but on a weekly basis.

This way we can find time to write a short poem or story and keep our other projects moving along also.

Please vote in the poll above to let me know your thoughts.

In the spiriit of Valentine's Day, I have chosen the word, "love".

Have fun & be creative.

Be sure to post a link to your completed piece in the comments below.

I can't wait to read them.

Thanks for the appreciation Brenda

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on February 14, 2021:

Misbah,

Thank you so much!

I do Love it!

A writer is always a writer & writing with a word prompt does seem to put a little fun into our work.

Definitely try to share bliss with a loved one. Life's moments are precious.

Weekly seems to be the best suggestion so far.

Take care & I look forward to reading more of your work.

Misbah from The Planet Earth on February 14, 2021:

A very well shared piece Brenda,

Doing it on weekly basis is good

On your word prompt "love"

I dedicate this poem to you Brenda

Hope you will like it

A Writer is always a writer,

And the writer is always creative

Let's do some fun,

Life never gives a second chance

Be in #love with someone special

This bliss is a lifetime deal

Happy Valentine's Day

Rosina,

In case you missed this one

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on February 14, 2021:

Liz,

I know that feeling.

Time...it seems to take all of mine lately.

But for these prompts I try to write on the spur of the moment.

Thank you & Happy Valentine's day.

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on February 14, 2021:

Shauna,

Thank you.

I'm glad to hear I might see you from time to time.

I enjoy picture promots also.

I seem to find alot of them on Allpoetry.com

They are alot of fun...especially the ones that are magical.

Happy Valentine's Day !

Liz Westwood from UK on February 14, 2021:

This is a great idea. I wish I had more time in the week to participate.

Shauna L Bowling from Central Florida on February 14, 2021:

Challenges are always fun, Brenda, whether word or picture. I love picture prompts as they lead my muse to a work of fiction, my preferred genre. However, I also write poetry. I may chime in from time to time.

I love the responses you've shared with us!

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on February 14, 2021:

Peggy,

Thank you.

I do believe they help with poetry, but I have seen a few people draft up a paragraph of a story over on Twitter.

Happy Valentine's Day!

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on February 14, 2021:

Here is a link to the short poem I created with the word prompt, " Love".

Happy Valentine's Day, Brenda! Those who write poetry should love these word prompts of yours.

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on February 14, 2021:

Pamela,

I love using prompts.

It amazes me that I can be blocked...then words just start pouring out.

You can use the word to write a short paragraph of the beginning of a story.

It does not have to be poetry.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Pamela Oglesby from Sunny Florida on February 14, 2021:

Word prompts are a great way to use your imagination, Brenda. As I typically don't write poetry I am not sure i could write a good poem. I may play with it and see if I can do something.

Happy Valentine's Day!
