Monday Morning Writing Prompt–Circular Poetry


Image via Wikipedia

It’s Monday afternoon here and Tuesday in some part of the world. My house guests have left and little-by-little I will return to my routine and become re-acquainted with the goings-on in the world of our poetry communities.

For today’s prompt, I would like to suggest a circular poem (or short fiction.) Think about something that begins and ends back where it begins. You may consider life cycles, seasons, journeys, relationships, sacred geometry…anything that is cyclical/circular. You can use any poetic form if you choose to write poetry and may want to try something that uses repetition or even a structure such as a circle or spiral.

This week I didn’t have a chance to write anything, but hopefully I will have something for you very soon. Please submit your poem or a link to it in the comment section of this post. Short fiction is also welcome.

    Here is a simple “quadra”, kind of a Portuguese haiku, wishing you a pleasant weekend:

    A Circle in His Eyes…
    In his eyes she saw the circle
    In his eyes she read enigmas
    She stepped out of the circle
    Out of deceit and stigmas

    There is something about a work that comes full circle that is satisfying. Something organic about it. Very fine suggestion.

    Well, Victoria, I recently tried my hand at a palindrome poem and thought it may be appropriate for your “circle” challenge. Another tricky form to accomplish!

    If you need a line for a poem I can suggest this one:

    “In his eyes she saw the circle”

    And here is the link to my travel poem:


    • And, as I said on your blog, I hope YOU take it and run with it, Seabell.


      • seabell says:

        Sorry, got it wrong! So you suggested a poem, not a line. And I think I have something written around circles… Maybe next time. I like the idea of writing a given theme!


      • I would love to have you join up. You write wonderful poetry…and there is no deadline. I try to give a prompt every Monday to help jump-start the writing week. Thanks for the line, though. I would love to see you develop it.
