NaPoWriMo Day 24 Prompt for Wednesday, April 24, 2013 April 23,

April 23, 2013

“Each man has his own way. After all, most writing is done away from the typewriter, away from the desk. I’d say it occurs in the quiet, silent moments, while you’re walking or shaving or playing a game or whatever, or even talking to someone you’re not vitally interested in. You’re working, your mind is working, on this problem in the back of your head … What’s an artist? He’s a man who has antennae, who knows how to hook up to the cosmos; . . . why do ideas, why do great scientific discoveries often occur in different parts of the world at the same time? The same is true of the elements that go to make up a poem or a great novel or any work of art. They are already in the air, they have not been given voice, that’s all. They need the man, the interpreter, to bring them forth.”
— Henry Miller

Prompt 23—Images. There are thousands of instant recognizable images from advertising, videos, movies, art works, news programs that are instantly recognizable. Use one or more of these in a unique way in an original poem.
