Today’s prompt is this:
- Is specific to a season
- Uses imagery that relates to all five senses (sight, sound, taste, touch, and smell)
- Includes a rhetorical question, (like Keats’ “where are the songs of spring?”)
Why are these prompts so complicated?
Salty water lines my brow,
My sight is hazy,
All I can hear is the whirring of a cooler,
I’m definitely going crazy.
Everything smells sweaty,
Sticking to the skin,
The clothes I’m wearing are wet,
I’m crying within.
I cannot wait to see cooler climes,
Although I love summer so,
I wish I was close to a water body, or in Bangalore,
I’m wondering, where did winter go?
