Prompt #38 Morning Wake-up Call

January 20, 2011


Morning Wake-up Call

Let’s get physical, as Olivia once sang! Use your poem to describe in best detail how it is when you awake in the morning (or whenever is wake-up time for you). Be specific and concrete please. Make this real (or as real as you poetically dare). Describe your body and mental process. Describe the room. Be free to focus on some more specific aspect(s) of your transition into the day, but keep it rooted in the real experience. Always, please allow your muse to play as it wishes to, however this week we invite you to feel the physical roots in your life.

How do you know you’re awake! Is the process swift or a snail’s pace? Do you lounge in bed for a while or leap feet first into the day? Look for details and describe your experience in the poem you write.

Come back next Wednesday when you see,It’s Post Your Poems Day!” and leave a link to the poem on your blog. If you don’t have a blog, then please, post your poem in the comment itself.    ***    You are invited to respond to the prompt given here, but if you have something else you’re just itching to share, please feel welcome in doing that. Our first desire here is to encourage you to write and learn and share.    ***    When leaving comments to other’s poems, please be appreciative and encouraging. We are not a poem “critique” site (unless someone specifically asks for that). Be kind with each other (and yourself!).    ***    Please consider including a link with your blog poem back to the prompt response here at We Write Poems so that others may see and join our community. More participants do make better soup!
