But first some words about my silence here in the last few days. Unfortunately, I suffer from something called “Benign Paroxysmal Positioning Vertigo” a posh name for dizziness. It feels a little like being sea sick all the time and I have spent the last few days either at the doctors or sitting still and reading.
There have not been any participants for last weeks “The Day Jobbers Essential Poetry Prompt” besides me and I don’t think I need to post my poem twice. As it is not clear how long that vertigo of mine will last (can be from a few days to a few weeks) I will keep quiet until I am better again. I will not stop doing “The Day Jobbers Essential Poetry Prompt” though. And if I have any participants I will, of course, do the usual Tuesday summary post with links to their poems.
So what do I have in store for you this week?
I have been reading the second and am reading the third book of “The Long Earth” series by Stephen Baxter and Terry Pratchett. In this third book, a new species of humans have evolved who are a lot more intelligent than the usual human. They see through perceptions and call the normal human “Dim-Bulb” and I somehow thought about light bulbs.
In Germany you say if you suddenly get a bright idea: “A light bulb shines for me” and often they show a light bulb shining beside ones head in comic strips. So I thought “Light bulbs” are brilliant as a poetry prompt.
It is up to you if you would like to do another visual poem in form of a light bulb. Maybe you want to write about actual light bulbs or do a brain storming about the word and then use the upcoming words for your poem. Go crazy. I am sure you have many more much brighter ideas than me.
So here is how to take part:
•Read “The Day Jobbers Essential Poetry Prompt” here on “The Bee Writes…” on Wednesdays
