Breeze of the Future Writing Prompt

Today, I'm going to steal a phrase from a fabulous Mark Strand poem which can be read on Writer's Almanac today. Please read the poem AFTER you try the prompts.

Free-write for 5 minutes to this phrase:

Let the breeze of the future. . .

After you free-write, you can take what you have written to turn into a story, poem, song, etc.

The phrase is from Mark Strand's poem "A Short Panegyric" and can be read here.


  1. This is a good one. I have tucked it away for future use.

  2. Love the photo as well. Will give it some thought.

  3. Glad you two liked it. Thanks for stopping in.


I only ask that all comments be polite and constructive.
