Monday Morning Writing Prompt–Dream On


Here’s a prompt to help you get started on a new week of writing. Write a poem or flash fiction using a dream you remember, one that sticks with you. If you don’t remember your dreams, use your imagination!

Here’s one I wrote last spring. I was, at the time, reading a book on American Indian spirituality and dreamt about shape-shifting.

Dream

Last night I dreamt of
feathers and shape-shifting.
Today a wren perches on a naked branch
outside my window.
By afternoon
the tree is in full bloom.

    there are many many writing challenges, I let people choose, my link offer many,
    I am very occupied with stuff, I feel free to do what I think I might, but not under any obligation or pressure…

    Thanks for the information.

    • I understand. I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed right now myself. If it becomes a burden then it defeats the purpose, doesn’t it? I will be going to Southern CA on Thursday for a family celebration of my mother’s 90th (!) brithday. I suspect I will have a few days without “poeming” and without blogging. I am giving her a handmade poetry book. If you have time, perhaps you could help celebrate her. If not, that’s okay too. Her name is Brigid.

    What a great idea for a prompt. I have many dreams that I have written down because they have been profound (like your shape-shifting dream) or very meaningful.

    I love this dream/poem of shifting forms and a miraculous tree.
