Her Body (2022 NaPoWriMo #01)

With a little digging I found another series of poetry prompts being provided by NaPoWriMo – 30 Poems in 30 Days. I started in the middle so these will be coming out of order as I work to catch-up.

Prompt 01

Write a prose poem that is a story about the body. The poem should contain an encounter between two people, some spoken language, and at least one crisp visual image.


Hmm. There are two way’s I’m thinking about taking this. One is more aligned with the prompts intent (I think). The other is a bit of a twist. Perhaps I’ll try to incorporate both. Perhaps not. Perhaps we’ll find out together. Let’s go.

Her Body

Her body swayed like the sea being blown by a steady breeze. Not too strong, but strong enough for her movement to catch my eye as she slowly approached me. Her hips moved in a concert of rising and falling waves. Her hair dancing gently with the seaweed – gold locks entangling with the lush green. Her lips, a sunset pink turning purple dusk, seemed to whisper the answer to my unasked question — “This wasn’t meant to be”.

Be well,
