Day 21 , Prompt for today: myth of Narcissus. After reading the myth, try writing a poem that plays with the myth in some way. For example, you could imagine that imagine the water is speaking to you, the narcissus flower. Or you could write a poem in which the narcissus berates the Kardashians for stealing their neurosis. Or a poem that comments on the narcissism of our time, i.e. beauty and body obsession, etc.
The world's a farce a deception each relation you call your own is a pretention rise above the known expect no yield of what you have sown sow the narcissus flowers in your garden for once Stop living like the spartan survive by the mirrors live around the rivers turn inward love thy self lest loose yourself in this rut live thy life on thy own terms sow the narcissus flowers in your garden for once Without a guilt mankind absorbed it's fragrance a long long time ago what are you waiting for hear the echo of your inner self love thy self before you love the other for once sow the narcissus flowers in your garden.
