The prompt for Day 19 of NaPoWriMo is to write a poem that recounts a creation myth. It doesn’t have to be an existing creation myth, or even recount how all of creation came to be. It could be, for example, your own take on the creation of ball-point pens, or the discovery of knitting. Your myth can be as big or small as you would like, as serious or silly as you make it. 

I have worked around a myth behind invention of Telephone. Hope Graham Bell wouldn’t be annoyed with me 😉



Her captivating voice had a magic spell

her charming words could cage Bell

her profound reflections

her sparkling laughter

he could die to relive

that musical jasper

so he wired his mind

telegraphed waves of sound

experimented with transmitters

worked on electro-magnetism

to create a bell

that could capture her spell

that’s how he invented the telephone

the great Alexander Graham Bell!
