Poetry Prompt: Cozy

Poetry Prompt: Cozy

What do you think of when you hear the word "cozy"? Does it make you imagine curling up in front of a warm fireplace with a mug of hot cocoa? Maybe it brings memories of summer nights watching fireflies from the front porch. Today's poetry prompt will draw on your memories of coziness to create poetry!

Over the past few months, we've tried out poetry prompts that are as simple as looking at a picture for inspiration and as complicated as writing a recipe. Poetry can be inspired by anything, whether a memory, your favorite color, or a funny story.

Today's poetry prompt is even simpler: it's just one word.

Think about the word "cozy." What memories does it bring to mind? What scene would you describe as your ideal for "coziness"?

You don't need to brainstorm or write anything down. Just let a few images come to mind and pick one that you like. If you want to learn more about images, check out this post on creating "live images."

Once you have your image in your mind, it's time to start writing your poem. Be sure to use all five senses to describe your cozy scene and make it come to life for your audience! Use this Sensory Teatime post for inspiration.

Bonus: If you can, incorporate a few elements of everyone's ideal cozy scene into your Poetry Teatime this week.
