Poetry Prompt - through Sunday, May 3, 2009


Waiting for the Stage

By Richard Caton Woodville

19th Century

This week, for Sunday, May 3rd, our SIMPLY SNICKERS poetry prompt includes these key words:



This week, we celebrate the birthday of American painter Richard Caton Woodville, who was born on April 30, 1822. To honor this artist, SIMPLY SNICKERS offers a sample of his artwork to accompany this week’s prompt.

Feel free to use the artwork in your own blog post, or not, as inspiration strikes you. Just be sure to come back to SIMPLY SNICKERS by Sunday, May 3rd, and leave a comment with a link to your post, once you have published your poem on your own blog.

Please check out the other SIMPLY SNICKERS entries. What creative writer doesn’t appreciate encouraging comments?

We also invite you to visit The Meme Express for daily blogging prompts. Try today’s prompt, or pick one from the archives. See what starts your creative engine – for poetry, prose, photography or other postings.

Bonus link hint:

On Sundays, you may leave comments (with links to your SIMPLY SNICKERS entries) at The Meme Express, which issues a Sunday Invitation to SIMPLY SNICKERS each week.
