Prompt #55 Everything, and how it began!

May 19, 2011

Thank you all (again, again) for the bushel of fine prompts offered here!

(subtitled: Home from late work, and haven’t even taken off my shoes as yet.)
You’d think it might be easy tonight, suggesting the next prompt – but that assumption would be inaccurate. Maybe it’s too many plates on the table, too little time, and no time yet to properly, gracefully, digest all the many fine writing prompts that have been offered here. THAT will take some few days at the least for me. Pardon, and bear with me please. So this week I’m just going with a spark that seemed to leap between one suggested prompt and one comment on that idea.

So thanks to both Irene and Margo Roby for this week’s prompt!


Everything, and how it began!

We Write Poems:  
Write a poem about how the universe began! This is a combination of “your theory of the universe” and your personal “creation myth”, taken we suggest with a leaning toward the scientific view. How did all this everything come into being?

Sound like fun? And no, you won’t be tested for scientific accuracy – alchemy is allowed. Yet perhaps spend a little time searching the internet for ideas about how the universe began. It’s still “theory” you know. Then do a little cosmic designing, stir the pot, and suggest your creation myth in whatever manner you wish. It might measure its’ steps in scientific thought, or take whimsical flight however your imagination might desire.

Is that enough for one week? I think we’ll be back sometime for more from this interesting prompt. Just the first course for now!

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!
