Totally Optional Prompts this week asks us to be inspired by novels. To start with here is a haiku review of Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See, a novel I read recently:
sworn best friends
write secrets in a fan -
bound feet ache.
Secondly, you can read a poem I wrote inspired by Fugitive Pieces by Anne Michaels here.
Thirdly you can read my review of Emperor's Babe a novel in verse by Bernadine Evaristo here on the Pink Gun blog.
Finally, the last stanza of this poem was inspired by Chocolat by Joanna Harris
