So this week I’ve decided to participate in ‘The Reverie Poetry Prompt’ for a bit of wordsmith fun. Generally I’m not very good at poems but this particular online event caught my eye as the last song that I wrote with my previous band happened to be titled ‘Reverie’ so the word holds a lot of meaning to me and my life.
So what is ‘The Reverie Poetry Prompt’?
Basically, every week on Monday the poetic publication journal ‘The Reverie’ posts out a prompt for you to write a poem about and you submit a poem to them. On the Saturday of that week, everybody gets to vote on their favourite poem and the winners (which are announced on Sunday) will be featured in ‘The Reverie’.
So here I go, this is the first poem I’ve ever written and the prompt is ‘hibernation’.
By My Hot Fox Megan
Welcome to my hibernation
Barred with fear of laceration
Sleep forever, sleep forgone
Sleep for never, sleep unknown
For now I lie awake at night
Can’t hibernate I’m froze with fright
For once I start to drift
My soul begins to scream
And then I am convinced
That I’m listening to my dream
There you have it, that was my first poem! I’ll be submitting it to ‘The Reverie’ later on. I encourage you all to also give it a go, it was actually kind of fun! How did I go this time? What did you guys think?
Post your own poems below, I would love to read them! Until next time, stay soulful!
