Day 6: Line


Today's prompt was to pick a short line from a favourite book and use it as the title and inspiration for a poem, and then change the title.

'There was scope for imagination here.' - Anne of Green Gables

Scope for Imagination/Seed

Held in hand, sprinkled wonder.

Metaphor - hope, growth, new beginning.

Great expectations, fairytale motif. Magic beans

in miniature; beanstalks, called to mind.

A flag, a banner, a subtle unfurling.

World within a whorl, within a week

periscope of possibility.

Tiny seed, smaller than a full stop

curled in on itself like a dream,

hatching the future.
