Welcome back to another week of creativity!
I am inspired by the following words, and offer the same as a writing prompt for this week.
No, you don’t have to use all four. You can use one or more of the given words in your piece – poetry or prose.
You may use the following images or poem by William Wordsworth as additional inspiration.
She Was a Phantom of Delight BY WILLIAM WORDSWORTH She was a Phantom of delight When first she gleamed upon my sight; A lovely Apparition, sent To be a moment's ornament; Her eyes as stars of Twilight fair; Like Twilight's, too, her dusky hair; But all things else about her drawn From May-time and the cheerful Dawn; A dancing Shape, an Image gay, To haunt, to startle, and way-lay. I saw her upon nearer view, A Spirit, yet a Woman too! Her household motions light and free, And steps of virgin-liberty; A countenance in which did meet Sweet records, promises as sweet; A Creature not too bright or good For human nature's daily food; For transient sorrows, simple wiles, Praise, blame, love, kisses, tears, and smiles. And now I see with eye serene The very pulse of the machine; A Being breathing thoughtful breath, A Traveller between life and death; The reason firm, the temperate will, Endurance, foresight, strength, and skill; A perfect Woman, nobly planned, To warn, to comfort, and command; And yet a Spirit still, and bright With something of angelic light.
As usual, there is no restriction on length or format of the piece. interesting photographs are also welcome. Write a post on your blog, and copy-paste the link in Comments. In case you are using a pingback, do check back to see if it has worked.
Last, but not least, don’t forget to tag the post “Reena’s Exploration Challenge” for easy location in the blog roll.
