Prompt #6: A Room of Your Own

You may email your responses directly to me at, or leave your efforts in the comment section below each day’s prompt.  I would be happy to share work and links back to bloggers and poets that have decided to participate.
Many of you may already have a poem or piece that fits the prompt, but try to write and share something new.  Flex muscles.  Write.  You can always revise later.

Prompt #6: A Room of Your Own

bathroomWhat is your favorite room in your home?  For me, it is definitely the bathroom. I know, you’re thinking that’s bizarre, but it’s private and relaxing.  I’ve even been known to read books in the bathtub.  Thankfully, friends suggested that I put my Kindle in a Ziploc bag in case I slipped up.  Try to describe your favorite room, either from your childhood home or in the place you are currently living.  What is it about that space that makes it so special?

PS: That is totally NOT my actual bathroom.  If it was, I would live there.

    Pot Roast and Pens

    If I could write in the kitchen,
    I might,
    surrounded by the bustle of my aunts and mother,
    watching familiar hand gestures and eyebrows,
    the clang of plates and sharp voices
    —whether too much pepper
    would burn our mouths,
    to be a perpetual guest in southern comfort,
    always welcome to come and sit down a’ spell,
    just write, a glass of tea sun-sweetened near my hand,
    but not too close to drip on the page,
    to glory in the smell of pot roast and write.
    But I wouldn’t write if I was there,
    I would eat
    and talk
    and share
    and bask
    and never even lift a pen.
