Sun rises on a new day –
tree branches creak
in dawn’s cool breeze
and we birds fill the air
with our song of joy:
a clarion call to the world
to give voice to our thanks,
our hopes and dreams
of a good day to come


This prompt comes to us from this list of “all-time favorite writing prompts.” It asks you to name your alter-ego, and then describe him/her in detail. Then write in your alter-ego’s voice. 

My alter ego is that master of song, the blackbird. The beauty of his song will always be uplifting to the soul.
