Monday Poetry Prompt

This week’s prompt: personify an inanimate object

The ‘thing’ could be something you handle everyday in your household or work. Something dear or dreaded. It could be something from nature, a stone, a leave.

Give is life, give it a voice, a perspective, a view.

If you are having trouble getting started, alternatively, you can give an inanimate object human qualities, like Mary Oliver did in her poem ‘In Your Hands‘.

Happy Writing!

This is the last prompt from Living Poetry until May.
As we enter April: National Poetry Month (Yeah!), we typically follow Robert Lee Brewer and his Poem A Day challenge. He posts a daily prompt on his Writer’s Digest blog ‘Poetic Asides’. Use that as your inspiration for the day.
