Verse First ~ Omniscience

Welcome to Verse First, where simple notions prompt amazing poems.

Today's notion?


In Writing Down the Bones, Natalie Goldberg says, "In writing you can know everything." So today, be omniscient. Be a know-it-all, an expert; be the last word. Write a poem with a voice of authority.

After you post your work on your website, use Mr. Linky to share it here. Leave a comment below if you like, and please support others by visiting and commenting on their work.

I look forward to reading your bold, all-knowing perspectives.

  1. I love your prompts, Kim. I think I might have to take my own advice.

  2. I'm linking to one I posted last November. Kinda sums up today's notion, I think! This one won't be having the last word, but the last TWO words! ;D Cheers!

  3. Kim,

    I enjoyed thinking about, and composing with omniscience in mind...
    Another fantastic prompt..

    Hope your house move is going well:)
    Best wishes,

  4. This is new, a thought I've been nurturing for a while that needs about three pages of free verse and a title like "Mash Up or Plagiarism." Meanwhile, here's the short take. Thanks for the nudge, Kim.

  5. Thanks for a fun prompt and for inspiring a limerick.

  6. Thank you for the prompt it played with my mind :)

  7. You certainly think up some interesting ideas! I found that I had one already which I think fits the bill. (Is there any creature more omniscient than a cat? LOL)

  8. Quite a prompt. I am delayed a bit but let me see if I can still make it! :) HOper all is fine with you Kim!Long time!

  9. Kim another great prompt though mine deals more with questions of life than answers
