Some of the stops along the poetry trails invite you to reflect and write a poem or prose passage of your own. You’ll find creative prompts on the back of selected signs. We’ll be posting some of our creative prompts here as well as general resources for writing about nature.

Sample Prompt:

Rupert Fike’s “From a Newborn’s Head” on the Michelle Obama Trail

Rupert Fike’s “From a Newborn’s Head” moves from the fresh scent of a baby’s scalp to the pungent smell of the grown child’s soccer socks. Write a poem or a short prose passage celebrating a fragrance you associate with a particular memory.
