Today's prompt from Poets on the Page

If you wrote a poem yesterday, choose three lines that you feel are particularly well crafted AND they speak to you. Those lines you chose are now today’s poetry writing prompt.

Start with one of the lines or phrases and begin writing it over and over and over…After you have done that for a moment or two or five, other words will start pushing through. Allow them to push through. Allow them to take the lead. Right here is the raw material for your poem of new beginnings.


and in the moment
when passion returns
overruns the heart hysteria
the overclouded brain
you see the light
                             the path to acceptance
                             to peace
                             within yourself
                             you know you are enough
                             to overcome
