Love is like…

Writing Prompt: Begin with the words “Love is like…” and brainstorm all the things that come to mind. Use this list as a jumping off point for a poem that compares love to a single object as in the video.

 

Love is like…

A wrecking ball…
A national gossip column…
A multi-million dollar wedding…
Jumping on a talk show host’s couch…
Fighting addictions and headlines simultaneously…
Accidental pregnancies…
Diamond rings…
Divorce….
Whatever the media tells us to believe…

Although, I believe love is more like…
Cuddles…
Hot chocolate…
Stuffed animals…
Sweet whispers…
Laughter…
Tears of joy…
Reading by candle light…
Holding hands at the movie theater…
Sharing the Sunday comics…
Remembering how many spoons of sugar go in her coffee…
Feeling…. Feelings.

What’s your laundry list of love?

    Great idea to compare what we’re told and shown love is in pop culture, but then defining it based on your reality. Love the detail of the coffee!
