Today’s suggestion is to write for five to ten minutes asking the question, “How will I know?” The poem can be about anything that you are trying to figure out. The idea is to take a random text, pick out resonant words from it and then create the poem from them. Whilst pondering on my plans to expand my coaching business, I landed upon a factual text about butterflies and created from this. I have to admit I enjoyed this prompt far more than I anticipated. Almost as soon as I began writing, Android, who was completely unaware of my idea, shared a photo that he had taken of a butterfly and I simply had to include this image to accompany my poem!
Flying Gem Feelings
How will I know, until I try?
Unfold my sticky and scaly wings
Perceiving through my cupid compound eyes
Gives an enchanting perspective on things
How will I know until I fly?
Display the array of my coloured wings?
Thorax and head threading through the sky
Flitting towards what the future brings
How will I know until I let go?
Trust is a must when you spread your wings
Flying Gem feelings say more than we know
Change hope and life are what courage brings
