Write for five to ten minutes asking the question, "How will I know?" It can be about anything that you are trying to figure out for yourself.
Suggested Form: If you have poetry magnets it's time to get them out and play with them. Randomly select words that grab your attention and create a poem from them. If you don't have magnets, you can do black out poetry by taking anything with words on it, find words that resonate with you and black out the rest. Or you could choose your favorite form from the last 20 days and create a poem in that form.
Love or Lust
Please explore poetry without rules, but don't try to fix anyone. Some of us love to explore the darker side and we just want to be heard. If the words you read touch you in some way, share what you love about the poem, what speaks to you, what makes you feel deep in your bones, but no giving advice or words of wisdom. That isn't what this is about.
Remember, our prompts are only suggestions, you can find your inspiration wherever your muse leads you. Please visit the other participants, share the hashtag, #OctPoWriMo on social media, and share your link in the comments below. Let us know how this journey into poetry is going for you.
