Verse First ~ Right Under Your Nose

Verse First ~ Right Under Your Nose


Welcome to Verse First, where simple notions prompt amazing poems. 
Today's notion?


RIGHT UNDER YOUR NOSE


Settle into a comfortable seat, in a place that stimulates your senses.
Now look around.
Closely observe your surroundings. What do you see, hear, smell, taste, feel?
Write about it. In detail. Those are not flowers. Not dahlias, either. They are pomegranate-colored dahlias with stems arching like salsa dancers being dipped.
DETAILS! Give us details! Don't tell or describe;  but rather, empower the poem to embody what is RIGHT UNDER YOUR NOSE.

~ Kim

  6. It might even be right under my nose. I just cant find it! I shall return, even if I have to resort to upper lip follicles, hee hee.

  7. All your prompts are wonderful, Kim, and I take them in. It's a just that I am so very occupied with other matters of late. I just wanted you to know that, even so, they are not wasted on me!

    1. I am swamped, too, Rosemary. Haven't even the time to write to my own prompts! But I am glad you check in and perhaps get a little inspiration for other projects. :-)

  8. Thank you for the prompt! My subject matter might be more over my head than under my nose, but either way it is my attempt at having a greater awareness to the splendor of a rain storm. Hope you enjoy it!
