Monday Poetry Prompt

This week’s prompt: first lines

Below is a list of first lines from various poems by Kay Ryan. Pick one and make it your title or your first line and then write a poem.


Wherever the eye lingers
It takes a courageous
It’s a pickle, this life.
The moral is
Trying to walk
It worked without
Dust develops
It is at the edges

Happy Writing!
