Mr. Neal’s Creative Writing Classroom Blog asks bloggers to take part in a prompt. The idea is to make a post that describes what a poet's job is, in the same way you might describe what the president's job is.

Click here if you think you might like to take part.

I wrote for this Sara-I linked to the prompt page as well.

Thanks for taking part.

Here is my contribution to the prompt.

Split open a soul
pour words out like wine

till you ache
till you feel
make you think
make you cry

Breakdown a wall
Paint new worlds for the blind

see my heart
see my fears
make you free
make you fly

And I bleed
all these words
like you bleed when you die

But I live just to bleed

Just to bleed
for your eyes

Sara, it's odd to see you signed in with just a name-probably the time away. I liked your poem a lot. It's powerful. You should have posted it on the site-not many will read it in a comment box-maybe that was your intention.
Three phrases really stuck out to me-the first stanza, "paint new worlds for the blind" and the last stanza. It was definetly a different approach than I took which was nice to see.
