Prompt #29 “Hope” in response to fires in Australia

Leave a comment

We have all seen on the news the devastating fires in Australia in the last week. Can you write a poem that has a message of hope for the children who have lost homes and property? Think of all the different people involved especially the fire fighters as well as those organising food and shelter for the victims. It is during these times that we see a wonderful community spirit come through and people reach out to each other.

The Love of Writing

 

Writing stimulates me,

In so many different ways,

It’s exciting and challenging,

I look forward to Mondays.

Another ‘prompt’ to think about,

Get creative juices flowing,

And then put pen to paper,

Write something that has meaning.

And hope that what I’ve written,

Will give somebody pleasure,

For I have shared part of myself,

Hope I stand up to the measure.
