Greetings, dear poets and storytellers. I hope you and your muse are feeling well, and in the mood for creative words. My creative juices have been a bit s l u g g i s h… So, I decided to read quotes on creativity, which I’ve been collecting for a while. A quote by our own dsnake1’s, in response to a poem about doing and thinking something fresh stayed with me. He said, “I think, to stay creative, is to stay happy and alive.” For today’s optional prompt, I invite you to create poetry or prose inspired by dsnake1’s words.

As usual, if this prompt isn’t for you, please share a piece of your choosing. Let it be new or old, fiction or nonfiction, short or longish (prose pieces should be 369 words or fewer). Share the direct link to your post. One link per participant. After you add your words, visit other writers, delight in their creations, and let them know what the product of their creativity does for you.
next week, Rommy will invite you to let your muses spend some quality time with the phrase “to burn”. What comes up for you when you read those words?
Great quote, thank you Magaly. And dsnake1. I'm not sure how true it holds in all circumstances, but I do agree it's a very big help.ReplyDelete
I doubt anything (other than death comes for all, eventually) holds true in all circumstances. But I do feel Lee San's words to be true, at least for me. I rarely feel as happy or as alive as when I'm creating.Delete
Hello all, That quote does offer a lot to think about. I've shared a poem which may (may not?) be an attempt at a poetry-memoir. I don't really know at this point. But if anyone here has written/ is writing (and posting) poetry as a personal story, please share the link, I'd love to read! Thank you... looking forward to some good reading today!ReplyDelete
Thank you, Rajani. I am looking forward to reading your (maybe) poetry-memoir.Delete
Growing up there were always dogs inour family. But as an adult i never wanted pets. I always tell people child and plants i am happiest with.ReplyDelete
So yesterday went i went to the NALIS library in Port of Spain to read one of my books and conduct a haiku workshop with the group, who were happy to listen and to participate, there was shared joy..
Vibrant children, lively plants, and people who love words as much as we do sound like a joy indeed. And there is no better joy, than the one we share.Delete
Good day, Poets & Storytellers!ReplyDelete
It's a wee bit past midnight here, I will be going around to read later.
Thank you, Magaly, for using my comment as a prompt. I am so surprised, and honoured. 😃
I am sorry I am not using the prompt this week, as my muse wanders. :)
Nan, thank you for letting us find inspiration in your words. They are powerful (and necessary).Delete
Colleen, the link you added is broken. It goes nowhere. :-(ReplyDelete
