Today’s prompt is to write a poem which imagines the story behind an heirloom.
You might like to consider:
- Should you choose a family heirloom about which you know the story, or something else?
- Should you try to tell an accurate history or imagine a new past for the item?
- Who has used it, when, why? How did you come to know of it / own it or see it?
- What do you imagine its future holds?
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.
