Poetry Prompt: Mystery Image

Poetry Prompt: Mystery Image

What is this mysterious image? Who is the girl, and what is she doing? Today’s prompt will lead us to consider mysterious places and imaginary worlds, all inspired by the image above.

Take a long look at the picture above. As you do, imagine a story for this image. Who is the girl in the picture? Why is she wearing a crown? What is the plant in front of her, and how are they connected?

Come up with as many details as you can. Create names for the girl, the plant, the place, and anything else that catches your eye. Imagine where she was before this image, and what she’s going to do next.

Once you have all the details of the story in place, use those names, places, and questions to inspire your poem.
