Imitating the Masters

by leeshelly

Today’s prompt is to write a poem based off of one of the five parts of “The Waste Land” by T.S. Eliot. You don’t have to have read any T.S. Eliot to participate – in fact, it might be better that way. Even out of context, his words are moving.

Here are the five parts:
The Burial of the Dead
A Game of Chess
The Fire Sermon
Death by Water
What the Thunder Said

What images come to mind? Take a few minutes just to sketch out (in words) what your chosen line makes you feel. Post what you come up with!
