Prompt: Senses

Write a poem or prose sketch directly using all the senses except sight.

Ex. “I smelled musty wood creaking under my feet. I could taste salt on my lips from my clammy hands brushing against them. My skin pickled; the damp air pulling goosebumps up through my skin….”

This exercise is great for those of us who are prone to sight heavy descriptions and are missing out on the immersive qualities of multi-sensory imagery.

Have fun! And feel free to share your response in the comments
