Word Prompts Help Creativity / Week 7

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

Word prompts helps Creativity / Week 7 is a new series I am writing each week where I challenge Hubbers to write a poem or short story from a single word prompt. So far it has been alot of fun to see the diversity of what this word conjures up inside our minds. It usually sparks quite a variety.

Our Experience with Covid-19 Vaccine

We've anxiously been waiting for our second Covid-19 vaccine.

Wednesday the day arrives. We have no immediate reactions, but after 5 hours we think Mike Tyson paid us a visit. Our arms, where the injection was given, feels like it's been beaten.

The only other noticeable problem is my runny nose & we both feel tired.

The next morning things take a turn for the worse. We both feel like a Mac truck hit us. We have body aches, sweats, chills and a bad cough.

He also has vomiting with chills so bad his body is shaking. His fever spikes to 102.8 but we manage to bring it down with a sponge bath.

On Friday he is fine. No fever and feeling good. I am still tired with a bad cough and chills.

On Saturday I am better, but still battling a cough.

Regardless of our reactions, I'm still happy we got the Covid-19 vaccines. I urge everyone to get theirs when it is offered. We need to band together to fight this invisble monster.

Just be prepared to not feel good for a few days. Have some easy to prepare foods, basic cold remedies and a thermometer nearby. You may not feel like winning any races.

My Inspiration

It doesn't take much to spark my inspiration.

We stopped at a local diner for breakfast after our second covid vaccine and I sneezed when we sat down in the booth. Possibly from the disinfectant they use to clean the tables, but the waitress said, " God Bless You."

That got those wheels turning in my brain. I needed to know where this saying originated.

Thus my article, "Cold, Allergy or Flu: God Bless You. "

Then the other day I was in the kitchen mixing up a meatloaf when this thought crossed my mind.

If the price is right, this can all be yours.

So needless to say, I jotted down a few quick lines until I can get back to it. I'm certain I will finish this one day soon.

The point I'm trying to make is that there is always an idea out there. Sometimes we just make it too hard on ourselves, trying to come up with that perfect one.

So instead of racking our overworked brains, let's just have some fun writing. Grab an idea that is floating nearby and jot down a few lines.

So let's embark on our next journey. Are you ready to create your next masterpiece?

Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness.”

— Desmond Tutu

Word Prompt = Hope

The word prompt for this week is "Hope."

After reading everyone's work from last week this word just keeps springing to mind.

In today's world people tend to look at things in a negative way instead of having hope for a better outcome.

We need more hope in the world.

Maybe a steak of bad luck comes to an end or you get a long awaited pay raise.

There are so many possibilities with this one.

So grab your pens and start jotting down a few lines.

I can feel those thoughts churning. Some are funny while others are full of inspiration.

I can't wait to read them all.

I will post this under the news feed at least three times a day. Please try to put a link to your work there so I don't miss anyone.

Have fun and be creative.

Highlights of The Week

Everyone's work this week is sensational!

I think our friend and Hubber Misbah says it best.

"Everyone paints a different canvas with beautiful colors using the same word in a different way." ~ Misbah

I am proud of each and everyone of you for touching our hearts and inspiring us with your words.

Deciding on whose work to highlight this week is quite a challenging.

They are all like diamonds shining bright and beautiful.

Vidya D Sagar's Oustanding First Poem

I am tremendously impressed with Vidya's over article and poetry.

It is absolutely wonderful and hard to believe this is her first attempt at writing poetry. The pictures, the videos and the story line before her first poem are all magnificent.

In her own words,

"We need to remember that hopelessness is the biggest obstacle to success. We must never give up hope."

In her poem a young woman who is desolate and lonely with no hope looks out a window.

When she hears the tiny bird singing she is inspired with hope for a brighter tomorrow.

This is great poetry! We can feel her embracing hope again.

Her second poem is an acrostic poem that tells us there's a choice. We can make tomorrow a better day with a quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson.

This reminds us there is only so much we can do in one day. We have to let go of it, tomorrow is another day.

Great writing! I hope everyone will take a moment to read her work. The link is below.

John Reminds Us Tomorrow Does Exist

John Hansen has captured the essence of tomorrow in his cute and whimsical poem.

It definitely reflects the meaning of tomorrow. In this line from his poem,

Some say, "tomorrow never comes,"

but that is just not true.

For today was once tomorrow,

and yesterday was too.

He reminds us that tomorrow does indeed exist.

I often feel like tomorrow is full of promises even tough my best laid plans often go wrong.

I am certain you will all enjoy John's poem. He is a great writer who can can write on just about any topic one tosses his way.

He proves that each week in his series, "Poems from the Porch."

Please take a moment to read his work. I've placed a link below.

Don't forget to congratulate him on his recent achievement. 500 Articles!

Congratulations John!

Ravi's Excellent Haikus

Ravi Rajan beautifully expresses the meaning of tomorrow in his excellent Haikus.

He has written four Haikus. One for each season.

He captures the essence of each season with the meaning of tomorrow embraced within them.

Please take a moment to read his work. The link is below.

Vanita,

I just finished reading this and you have done a magnificent job.

The story of Prahlad & Holika was most interesting.

She was not able to be harmed by the fire but did indeed burn while Prahlad remained alive.

A celebration of love. It seems so colorful & joyous.

You went into much detail even including songs and recipes.

I love the poem on Holi at the end.

Thanks for sharing this with us.

It is interesting to learn about other cultures.

It seems like a wonderful celebration.

If I can find this in the feed I will comment on it too.

Alyssa,

Thank you.

Don't try to force the Creativity..let it come to you.

Sometimes these word prompts help, but so does many other things.

Do whatever works for you. Maybe take the word prompt and look up a video.

Letting go is not the answer.

Maybe just finding a special place where you feel relaxed with everything you love around you....you might find inspiration.

We are both feeling alot better, except for this nagging cough that just won't go away.

The weekend was nice & we are looking forward to this week. Temperatures in the seventies.

We can get back outside.

Take care & happy writing.

Alyssa from Ohio on April 05, 2021:

I'm a little behind, but I've been doing exactly what you described -- trying to force the creativity. Sometimes stepping back, taking a deep breath, and just letting go is the solution. Fingers crossed, haha!

I'm glad to hear you are both feeling better. I hope you had a wonderful weekend! :)

Chitrangada,

Your words have painted a beautiful reminder for us all.

When you have Hope...nothing can stop you.

I love the way Bill says it,

"It is such a simple little word. Four letters, that is all, but so much meaning packed into those four letters"

Hope is the one thing that keeps us going. Without hope...I honestly don't know where we would be.

The quote by Christopher Reeves is spot on!

"Once you choose hope, anything is possible. "

Thank you for sharing this wonderful poem.

I will post a link in the article.

Have a great day!

Pamela Oglesby

She reminds us that when our day looks bleek to trust in the Lord. He is our hope.

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on March 30, 2021:

Pamela,

This is an excellent poem!

One should always trust in the Lord, especially during troubled times.

My favorite part is this one:

Stay positive when things look gray

The darkness will surely go away

Mistakes occur on too many days

People gossip in so many ways,

My hope is in the Lord

This poem reminds us to look to God. Times may look bad but he is there for us.

He will show us the light!

The videos are great too.

Thanks Pamela for sharing this terrific piece of poetry with us all!

I will post a link in the article so evrryone can have a chance to read.

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on March 30, 2021:

Vanita,

Thank you again.

I'm glad your parents didn't have too many problems taking the vaccine.

I sort of feel it has given me a slight cold...I still have this lingering cough.

But this vaccine gives us all hope & I'm looking forward to the days ahead.

I'm still hoping you will write about "Holi" and include it with your work. Sounds like hope to me.

Wear your mask & have fun.

Chitrangada Sharan from New Delhi, India on March 30, 2021:

Vanita Thakkar on March 30, 2021:

Hello, Brenda,

Thanks and compliments for the great work you are doing with these wonderful word prompts.

About the vaccine - it is nice that you took both the doses. The vaccine has indeed brought hope in the fight against the pandemic. My parents have taken one dose. My mom had fever for a day or so, dad showed minor symptoms for half a day or so .... Swollen aching arms are common. Some people show stronger reactions to vaccines, such as having fever, running nose, body ache, diarrhoea and / or head ache for 2-3 days. Here, people say the second dose is easier to handle. You seem to have had a different experience.

Take care. Lots of love and best regards to you.

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on March 29, 2021:

Vidya,

Thank you.

I believe alot of other Hubbers thought your work was good too.

I'm glad you got the first dose of the vaccine.

We only had sore arms for a couple of days with the first one.

I hope you don't get any reactions with the second one, but I would prepare ahead of time in case you do.

You won't feel like doing much if you do get them.

Take care & have a great week.

VIDYA D SAGAR on March 29, 2021:

Thanks Brenda for mentioning my poem. I am so thrilled that you thought it outstanding. Your word prompts really help and enthuse us to write. This week's word prompt is very apt to the situation we are in today. The vaccine has certainly brought hope for us after a year of anxiety and stress. Looking forward to reading everybody's interesting work with this prompt too.

Sorry to know you had so many side effects with the second dose of the vaccine. We did hear that the second dose was more troublesome. Hope you re over soon. When we had our first dose, we had fever for a day and pain in the injection site. We are waiting anxiously for the second dose now. Have a good day, and get well soon.

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on March 29, 2021:

Peggy,

I know I commented on this awhile back, but it popped up here again.

I'm delighted you enjoy reading everyone's work.

I am amazed each week with the variety of responses.

I'm so gkad you & your husband didn't have these reactions. They are no fun!

I wouldn't wish them on anyone, but we are glad we took the vaccine.

We need to stand against this monster and take our lives back.

Plus...I really miss alot of stuff. Like live concerts, vacation, etc.

Take care and have a great day.

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on March 29, 2021:

Peggy,

Thank you.

I'm glad you enjoy what everyone is writing.

I am quite impressed with the variety we get each week.

As far as the vaccine, I'm glad to hear you & your husband didn't have to deal with these reactions.

They were no fun. Today I still have a cough and woke up with one eye bothering me. It feels a bit swollen.

Is it an allergy or the vaccine? Who knows...it is allergy season.

I'm certain I will be fine.

The sun is shining and that always puts me in a great mood.

Peggy Woods from Houston, Texas on March 29, 2021:

I am enjoying reading what others write from your word prompts. So sorry that you had such a reaction from the 2nd vaccine shot. My husband and I only had very slight sore arms from both of the shots. It is a good feeling to know that those of us taking the vaccine shots are more protected. I hope that everyone does their part.

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on March 29, 2021:

Thank you.

This is our first piece of work for "Hope."

A lovely acrostic poem which shows us how we have hope.

Inspirational quotes and a little bit about "Holi" a festival of colors celebrated for 2 days.

When you have a moment...take time to read Vanita Thakkar's excellent writing.

Ann,

Thank you.

That sounds great! Whatever you decide to do is fine.

Hope is going to be a great word.

Thanks for your vote of confidence...saying I'm doing a great job.

I'm trying but this last week was challenging since we had the 2nd vaccine.

No worries though...just like writing, we have good & bad days. The trick is to enjoy it along the way.

Take care.

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on March 29, 2021:

Rosina,

Thank you.

I'm delighted to know you enjoy reading everyone's creations with the word prompts.

I appreciate your kind thoughts.

We are hoping for the best.

We want to be able to put this Covid-19 behind us enough to take a vacation.

They tell us it takes at least 2 weeks after the second dose to be fully protected.

But I still have this lingering cough and one of my eyes feels a bit swollen this morning. It's been 5 days, so do I have a common cold or side effects?

Or maybe I just didn't get enough rest since I was coughing most of the night.

I feel fine otherwise...just cough & now my eye.

Take care and stay healthy.

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on March 29, 2021:

Liz,

Thank you.

I wish there were no side effects, but I guess there is always a risk.

I hate to hear you had a headache but hopefully that will be all you get.

I still have this lingering cough which kept waking me during the night.

"Hope" is definitely something we can use a little of right now.

Take care and have a great day.

Thanks for another prompt with all your information to go with it.

I haven't got round to 'tomorrow' yet but will do so, maybe along with 'hope'!

You're doing a great job with this on-going idea, Brenda.

Ann

Rosina S Khan on March 28, 2021:

Hope is an interesting word prompt, Brenda. I can't wait to read everyone's responses. I have read everyone's regarding the prompt word Tomorrow last week.

I hope with Ron and you having done with the vaccines will be doing well soon. I wish you both all the very best.

Liz Westwood from UK on March 28, 2021:

Vaccines have had varying side effects in the UK. Some have just had the sore arm. I had a headache. Others have had flu symptoms. Hope is a great prompt. It is very appropriate to the times that we are living through.

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on March 28, 2021:

Last time tonight...

"Hope"

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on March 28, 2021:

Great work on the word prompts!

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on March 28, 2021:

John,

Thank you.

I agree. I think the word hope has alot of possibilities.

I'm glad I was able to get this week's word prompt out there.

I was beginning to wonder for awhile, but I finally got it put together.

I hate it when I don't feel well.

Take care and enjoy each day.

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on March 28, 2021:

Pamela,

Thank you.

We are both happy we had the vaccine.

We haven't enjoyed not feeling well, but at least we are much better now.

I'm so glad you did not suffer from any reactions.

I think "hope" will bring out a variety of work especially with this next weekend being Easter.

I hope you continue to write more poems. I really enjoy them. I especially enjoyed your one on tomorrow reminding us that we do better as a team.

You can write a short story, a song, a poem, or anything that has to do with hope if you want too.

Whatever you decide to write, I just hope I find it in the news feed.

Take care and have a great week.

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on March 28, 2021:

Manatita44,

Thanks. I'm so delighted to hear you read them all.

We have alot of talented writers.

Vidya definitely surprised me with her work.

I will pray you don't get any side effects from your second dose, but if I were you I would plan on taking it easy for a few days just in case.

We only had sore arms with the first one that only lasted a couple of days.

Take care and have a great week.

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on March 28, 2021:

Misbah,

Thank you.

We have definitely turned the corner. We are feeling much better!

I look forward to seeing what you write this week.

Your words are always beautiful.

Take care and have a great week.

John Hansen from Queensland Australia on March 28, 2021:

The word “hope” should bring out some wonderful pieces of poetry, Brenda. Thank you for keeping these prompts coming, and for mentioning the poem I wrote for “tomorrow.”

Pamela Oglesby from Sunny Florida on March 28, 2021:

My husband and I had no problems after either vaccine, and I am sorry to hear you did.

I like the word prompt, 'hope'. That is such an uplifting word. I never know if I will write another poem or something else. Time will tell. I love to read what everyone writes after you give us a prompt. I really like Vidya's poem last week. You are encouraging people to write poems (like me) who have not written a poem since high school. That is wonderful!

Keep up the great work, Brenda!

manatita44 from london on March 28, 2021:

Yes, lots of excellent work! I'm glad I read them all. Yes, I was also very happy about Vidya's. Very beautiful and hope-filled piece.

I did hear that the second Covid vaccine injection has greater side-effects in some people. I had one Astra Zeneca with tiredness and low-grade fever the following day. That's all. God's Grace I will have the other in about 6 weeks, Inshal'lah. Stay well and blessed.
