Inspiring Each Other

Hi poetry pals!

Well, today, something interesting happened.  Bruce wrote a poem, which inspired me, which in turn inspired Audra at UnfetteredBS, which inspired Franzad to write a lovely poem.  Talk about a wonderful chain reaction!  This led Bruce and Franzad to try out an “Inspiring Each Other” prompt, where one person starts with a poem, and we see where it branches out from there.  So…let me know if you are interested in joining the fun!

 

For an example, check this out:

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

  1. I’ve been thinking something “renga”-like would be fun…and inspiring to start amongst WPers.

    I am so glad to see you initiating and encouraging these collaborations Susan. I will get more involved in the future but today the timing was off for me. These sorts of global poetic interactions rock! I have talked about them in various poetry sessions around town and people are always excited to hear about them. Reaching out through the internet to create art is a testament to the human spirit.

  4. Oh, I agree, and these are so exciting. I love to see what the internet is doing to all of our writing! Hope you’ll join us soon on this!

  6. Susan,
    I saw this post come and go… likely on my phone… I’ve been swamped at work with the occasional touch on WordPress but tonight I sat down determined to find it again… 😀 That said, where are you on this idea. I have enjoyed writing poems inspired by paintings, photos, music, blog comments etc. I have also enjoyed writing “response” poems where I write as the “other side” of a poem as in an answer to the original poem. eg here http://stephenkellogg.wordpress.com/2012/06/19/1047/
    You can also go to my blog and search on “Inspired by” to see other examples.
    I’d love to jump in on something like this so … next steps? I hope to have more time over the next week or two to write so let me know.

    Peace,

    Stephen
