When you sit there and think of the word “Road” do you actually see a highway and the person next to you not paying attention or do you think of the yellow brick road in the Wizard of Oz. Maybe you reflect on a road trip where you and 3 other friends went half way across the country just because you were young and you could. Maybe you see the road to nowhere and cringe at that thought. What road will your writing take you down today, the streets of Spain or Italy, a back alley littered with dirty secrets?
Every morning many of us get up groggy eyed and thick headed and fight our way into the current reality of life. That reality requires us to go to work to earn our keep. That trip to work requires us to get on a road to get there. This may be the literal road where we pass many others that are doing the same, all of us navigating in and out of morning traffic, or it may be the figurative road we are all traveling on in life. Whatever road you are on we want to hear about it.
We can’t wait to travel down your road and see the world through your eyes and pen. So fill up your take and set off down the road of poetry and be sure to share it with us.
If you have a prompt idea (even a Music or Film inspired one) that you would like to suggest or share with us please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org . We keep a folder set aside with all your suggestions and just might use it one day.
