Today’s writing prompt is based on the poem Do the shells
Today’s poem considers the deep-downness of things. What is retained within something, even when it is removed from its ordinary setting or becomes broken?
Write a poem that explores some kind of deep-downness, whether it be in stardust or melting icebergs or even some aspect of yourself.
Start with a question, if you like: “Do the…?” or “Does the…?”
It doesn’t matter if the answer is yes or no. What matters is that you ask. Honest questions always lead us to interesting places.
