Sunday Writing Prompt: Poem – Bop – “Another Wonderland” #amwriting #poetry #dVerse


Thanks to MindLoveMisery’s Menagerie for hosting this prompt. For the prompt I have chosen the theme “a trip behind the looking glass,” the male Z name “Zenith,” the female Z Name “Zephira,” the instrument of a “mandolin,” the scent of “vanilla,” and the verb “surrender.”  Also, I’m combining the Prompt with Grace from Poetic’s Pub #dVerse on boarders

Mirror divides, boarders in this place from next,

She’s a second Alice, in blue, much perplexed. 

Her name, Zephira, born in distant lands. 

Fingers graze looking glass, ripples expand, 

Beyond here she knows lies Wonderland where —

She’ll meet talking creatures, rabbits, hares. 

Through the looking glass, Zephira finds new life. 

She’s read of Alice’s journey; though glass,

So she enters, vanilla an aroma that lasts; 

Invades her lungs as she breathes it in, 

This new reality, chance to explore freedom. 

Not to be forced to surrender to life’s —

Hypocrisy, marriage games played with spite. 

Alliance (loveless) to wealthy prospects, 

Zephira forgets, enticed with perspective. 

Through the looking glass, Zephira finds new life. 

Notes of the mandolin strummed lead her bare feet, 

To places wondrous where flowers her greet.  

Rising high, to top of mountain peeks, finds, 

Zenith, who’ll not control her, so she shines. 

Zephira surrenders to him, her choice glad, 

Holding hands in boarders of Wonderland. 

Through the looking glass, Zephira finds new life.

  1. You merged the two prompts with ease. Love this lines, This new reality, chance to explore freedom. Not to be forced to surrender to life’s — Hypocrisy. If only we can easily walk into a looking glass, into another world.

    1. Very good Margaret about mirror. You explained concisely what I meant there. As for the Madoline, I have a favorite movie, one of my absolute favs even though some parts are bad called “Captain Corellies Mandoline” it has a young Selma Hayake and younger Nicholas Cage and takes place in a Greek place over run by an Italian squad of men during WWII. Unfortunately, as it happened in real life, Germany turned on Italy. It’s a wonderful movie, makes u cry at parts. Also has a younger Christian Bale in the movie as well.

      Anyways, rambling, thanks for reading and glad u liked!
