Wounded Writers Ask – Free Write #18 – Name

Yep. I missed yesterday’s prompt. It was too crazy busy…I’ll get to it!

Write a free-verse poem using only the letters in your full name. If you’re married and take your spouse’s surname, you may want to include this name or create a poem with your maiden name, or both. I think what matters here is that you use the names with which you most identify.

(Inspired by Julie Larios.)



she serves ruins

she runs in blue blame

rains burn dead lies

she shields blares

head buried in shame

she names her shade

is she a sun?

made in shade?

she remains alive in dreams



That was good challenge!
