Welcome to VERSE FIRST, where simple notions prompt amazing poems.
THE PLACES YOU LOVE
We can thank our own Sherry Blue Sky for inspiring this prompt when she wrote this poem after reading "Say The Names" by Canadian poet, Al Purdy.
Follow Sherry's lead and consider the places you love and all that they mean to you. Say their names aloud. Listen to their rhythm. Embrace the emotions they evoke, and then write an ode to those wondrous locales.
