When the Wind Leaves
Check out the poetry forum for a list of completed entries. Some amazing poetry completed in less than an hour. THEN, consider joining the fun!
I didn't like my first one. So here's another one. This is not a real entry as it's not written under the true conditions of the challenge. Just a poem based on the topic. I had plenty of time to let the topic wander around my brain, so it isn't a fair comparison to those who learned of the topic and wrote immediately thereafter. The topic follows and IF you haven't seen it before, feel free to take the challenge. Read the topic, write a piece and post it. You have an hour.
This week's topic: Myth of the Wind
Minimum of 100 words
Pretend you are a member of a primitive tribe at some point in the past. Your people have beliefs and traditions very different from those of other societies around the world. All we want to know is what wind means to you. Give some reasons or examples, as you talk about this invisible yet powerful force of nature.
Suggestions (none required, just ideas to get you started):
In your society, is wind worshipped? Feared?
Does wind have a spirit? A name?
What does it bring to your people?
What stories do you have about its effects?
What myths do you have about its origin?
Please do NOT use myths of known societies, such as Incas, Native Americans, remote tribes of Borneo, etc. Invent your own, and only as regards wind.
