Writing Prompts from the Cocoon – April 21

Four Horses – Photo by David WhyteThis week’s prompt was given to me by Eva O’Callaghan, another Amherst Method creative writing facilitator.

Start by reading “Four Horses”. Eva says: “I like the structure of this poem by David Whyte as a prompt for reflecting on and writing about any happening and its impact. I found it helpful to me to reflect on what is going on in our world at the moment.” She suggests that you write a response that is anchored by these phrases from Whyte’s poem:

  • On XXXday…
  • Since then…
  • Since then…
  • Each morning…
  • I spend my whole day…
  • I find myself wanting to…
  • I find myself wanting to…
  • I hear…
  • I feel…

And if you come up with a poem that you want to publish, be sure to credit its source: after Four Horses by David White
