Verse First ~ A Place in The Universe

Welcome to Verse First where simple notions prompt amazing poems. 

Today's Notion?

A Place in The Universe

"The universe is not really made up of atoms, it's made up of stories. It is through the sharing of our unique stories that we can arrive at a deeper connection with another person. I also may come to a deeper connection with myself, with my own truth -- by exploring that edge of authenticity."
          ~ Muriel Rukeyser 

Our writing has a voice whose characteristics and timbre are uniquely ours. We see the world in our own special way and perceive experiences differently than anyone else. Use YOUR unique voice. Share a poem about your place, role, mission, position in the world, in the universe. Explore the edge of your authenticity.

Post your work on your website, then use Mr. Linky to share it here. Leave a comment below if you like, and remember to support fellow poets by visiting and commenting on their work. No linking and slinking away!

I look forward to reading poems unique to each of you. ~ Kim

    1. Lasha... I tried several times to comment at your site, but was each time redirected to a file not found page.

      Your poem is made up of images and instances that create a wonderful world. It made me smile!

    2. Lasha, it wouldnt let me comment either - but you have written a poem full of images of this wonderful old planet! Love the twinkling stars!

  7. Kim,

  8. I loved considering the possibilities for this! Thank you!

  9. I am enjoying your writings this week poet friends! Keep 'em coming!

  10. Kim, I like what you say about our own unique writing voice. If you ever feel like writing more on that aspect I would love to read it. Voice is something I want to improve in my poetry. Sometimes I think "That's it! I got it down right!" and other times I feel like I fell way too short of the mark. So any pointers you have would be awesome. Not that you need more to do - ha :-)

    Happy midweek poets!

  14. Loved the prompt. Though the poem I have linked was an old one. Now let me see if I could get another one going. :)

  15. Though I am a bit busy these days, but, couldn't help writing for this prompt! Thanks for the prompt, Kim. Shall read all the poems tonight!
