Completed Version of Today’s Writing Prompt

The Wind: A Poem, by K.E. Creighton

Fast and furious. Or steady and slow. Engulfed. I feel your appeal to the essence of nature’s intuitiveness. Unknown. Forever unknowable. By way of traditional senses. Formidable.

I can trace your temperature with my body. But will never be able to hold you when I reach out. My hands will always fall through your power. Only to be led and never to lead. Your natural force is endless. And endlessly. Unseen. Until after you’ve gleaned all you pass over.

Always elusive and fleeting. A permanence profoundly explicit. If unseen. You wreck. And heal. You elicit. And evolve. You confound. And compose. Me.

Notes on Completing this Writing Prompt

I’m not sure if what I wrote above could be considered a poem. But it was nice to get creative for a moment and not care about any rules while I was writing it. It’s liberating to forget rules for a while when writing any type of draft and really does spur creativity, even if what you write is very rough. I highly recommend it.
