On the Way to Coney Island by Mark Nepo

I just love this prose poem On the Way to Coney Island  by Mark Nepo that I stumbled upon  in today’s Huffington Post.

Can’t you just see him as a young boy in that kingdom of a dusty basement with the see through stairs? And the last line just slays me!

Nice little writing prompt tucked into the blog post-don’t miss it!

Excited to share it with my Memoir clients tomorrow at the launch of a new workshop.

I know Nepo as a spiritual writer and am familiar with  The Book of Awakening but did not know him as a poet. Now I do and am glad for it. Guess I have some reading to do.

Hope you enjoy.
