Poetry Prompt 45 – Climbing

write a poem which includes climbing

Today’s prompt is to write a poem which includes climbing.

You might like to consider:

  • Should you include literal or metaphorical climbing, or both?
  • Who or what should be climbing and why?
  • Should climbing form the central theme of your poem?
  • Can you use rhyme, rhythm or the way the words are laid out on the page to add to the idea of climbing?
  • Should you include climbing up and climbing down? Perhaps you should consider including falling?

Happy reading, happy writing -and if you do write, don’t forget to post your poem (in full or as a link) in the comments below so we can all enjoy it.
