Writing Prompt

The blogger Cubby (https://reowr.com/2019/02/06/prompt-laughter/#comment-12361 ) asked her readers to produce a poem from two lines she started with her writing prompt: laughter. I had never attempted a writing prompt before but found it fun. Here is what I created from her first two lines:


“You laughed the stars

into the sky”

and cried the rivers

into the earth

beauty falls from your tongue

like a snowflake to the ground

you are

the ember behind every inferno

the synapse of Gaia

rage on!
