Emily Dickinson NaNoWriPo prompt

To make collages it takes pictures and glue —
Some pictures, some glue
And something true.
Truth alone will do
If pictures are few

I read a post yesterday called Fame is Morning and used this NaNoWriPo prompt:

  • Find an Emily Dickinson poem – preferably one you’ve never previously read – and take out all the dashes and line breaks. Make it just one big block of prose. Now, rebreak the lines. Add words where you want. Take out some words. Make your own poem out of it!

When I saw Emily Dickinson’s Revery Garden on the wall at the Fenimore Art Museum, I want to give it a try. I added my own restriction of 23 words for the poem.

    1. I had almost stopped writing altogether but I decided for 2023, I would try to post 23 words every day. It felt like a do-able challenge.
