Poetry Prompt #323 – PLAYING FAVORITES #6
from POETIC BLOOMINGS
“Playing Favorites” is as simple as choosing a favorite poet/poem (world famous or just famous in our own little garden) and picking a line or title of one of their poems and using it as an inspiration for your new piece. Incorporate the line/title into your poem (remembering to credit the source and poet always).
Inspired by “There is no frigate like a book” – Emily Dickinson
THE WORLD WE KNOW
There is no frigate like a book
that sets sail on boundless sea
transports carriage of heart to heart
champion, writer, and me.
I’ve traversed the wayward winds afar
wandered green lands to and fro
no distance can set us apart
pages, and pages, the world we know
