I Did Morgan Harper-Nichols’ “Reveal The Poem” Prompt And This Is What I Wrote

Morgan Harper-Nichols is a fantastic poet and artist. She recently posted a poem that she wrote based on a prompt where you answer the questions, then erase them once you're done, and you're left with the poem.

The Prompt

  1. Close your eyes and think of something in nature. What's the first thing that comes to mind?
  2. What color is it?
  3. How does this color make you feel in 1-2 words?
  4. Imagine this thing in nature is before you. Describe it in 2-3 words.
  5. How do you think this thing in nature would describe itself?

My Bare Poem

A snowy mountain

white

clean

challenging but humble

"You don't need to be scared

I may be mighty,

but I am modest."

The Final 

A snowy mountain

can be shockingly

white,

offering a

clean and spotless

sentiment.

He is

challenging and humble.

In a husky voice

he assures me,

"You don't need to be scared

I may be mighty,

but I am modest.

Let me lead you

to the summit."

MHN has since deleted her poem, but the prompt can still be found on her instagram and her free downloadable artwork can be found on her website.

As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college. It contains the snacks and water bottle I need to survive long days on campus. It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack. With so much in my backpack important to me and my life on campus, it is no wonder that I can get apprehensive about it when it is not with me or in my line of sight. And that makes me wonder.

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?
