Prompt #16: Those Other Senses

Prompt #16: Those Other Senses

234844041_blind_folded_answer_5_xlargeWe rely heavily on our sight, even in our writing. If this month of poetry does nothing else, I hope it helps writers flex unused muscles.  I
know that there have been prompts already that specifically emphasize what we ‘see’ with our poetry vision.  So it may seem ironic that I want to move in a different direction with today’s prompt.  Try to write a poem full of concrete details without describing how things LOOK.  Instead, consider those other, often neglected, senses.  How does the air feel?  What sounds do you hear?  Smells? Describe an event, like maybe a car accident without saying a word about how things are seen.
