Request for Poems: Novelty

I've often been inspired by novels to write poems. So far, not the other way.

This week I'm posting a link to a poem in honor of one my very favorite novels: The Phoenix and the Mirror, by Avram Davidson. If you haven't read it, you're missing a truly stunning experience.

What did novels bring up for the rest of us TOPers?

I took the easy way out and went with the optional ~ a new poem, however, followed by a note about a novel.

I decided to walk into the world of my novel ~ called "Surfacing" by Margaret Atwood. I become the narrator, with a few poetic monolgue thoughts on the side.

Mine is pure nostalgia for the days when I'd read novels: Novels.

I'm sorry I didn't get time to work with this prompt, I thought it was a good one. I posted something fairly recent though instead.

This poem isn’t all about novels, but it was inspired by the memory of a room above a beach house filled with them. I love feedback don't hesitate to comment:Starfish Constellations

Mine was not a new one, but I wrote a poem in October that fits the prompt called My Story


But, I wrote a new one this week called Come Spring

This is for Niebla.

I don't know how to leave a comment on your blog. It said I had to be signed in. Signed in to what?

Anyway, I enjoyed your conversation poem. Very unique take on the prompt!

Hope you get this!

Paisley saw my response to an Easy Street prompt ~ "Fire Bride". (Great website for a huge range of writing prompts! There is a link to it in my posting!) My posting is about Miss Havisham from Charles Dickens' "Great Expectations".

She suggested I include it for this week's TOP! So now I have 2 offerings here.

Hope you enjoy!
