Prompt #7 for 2011: Epiphany

Welcome to Writer’s Island.

We are pleased to now be in our fifth (5th) year here on the Island, providing writing prompts. New prompt(s) are posted every Saturday at 12:01 AM, U.S. East Coast Time. Consider the prompt in depth, then let inspiration carry you.

When you feel what you’ve written is ready to be read by the other Islanders, just post your link right here in the comments section at the bottom of this post. Please leave whatever expanded comment you wish as a part of your posted link. You can also reply directly to any other comment.

••> The seventh prompt for 2011 is “EPIPHANY”, inspired by the wonderful photo above of this young lad.

As you contemplate its many meanings, such as • a usually sudden manifestation or perception of the essential nature or meaning of something • an intuitive grasp of reality through something, such as an event, usually simple and striking • an illuminating discovery, realization, or disclosure • an ‘ah ha’ moment, etc. — let the word epiphany spark your muse… or choose to go in your own direction with your piece this week. Just let yourself go with whatever it is that moves you to write.

Relax, respond to the prompt when you’re ready — or just leave a comment to say hi! As always, welcome to the the Island!!! 😉

    This is about the only one I’ve ever had!

  2. Thanks for the inspiration which gave me an epiphany. So I wrote an Epiphany Tanka.


    Saw this dress and it was an epiphany, the colour, the stand it stood on, I had to write a note on this to remind me of this epiphany

  4. Having worked most of my life in
    commercial advertising, the day I decided
    to start writing was a bit of an epiphany.

  5. Love the picture this week, although I wasn’t able to use it for my poem. Anyway, here’s my Epiphanies.

  6. Here’s my try. It’s an Etheree poem.
    I hope you like it! 🙂

  7. This prompt gave me a headache, but I’ve got rid of it now – it’s on my blog! (Seriously, an inspiration!)

    This week, I will definitely do better about reading and commenting on others’ work. This was occasioned by an instance that made me think I was seeing my past.
