This week’s prompt: write a poem about one of your favorite books or movies
Keep the poem to one page, 12 point font!
It isn’t always easy, with all the action everywhere, to distill what is really going on in a story, what is the struggle between two people or families. But it is fun to figure it out. Sit down, think about your favorite story, and compress it to its essence in a poem.
Here is my attempt:
In Her Shoes
Together, stuck in a rut,
holding bitter grudges,
too much history in the present,
ending in disaster.
Separated, discovering talents,
following a new calling,
feeling the void the other left,
learning the ‘Art of Losing’.
Grandma reunites the sisters
ready to rediscover each other,
letting go of the past, admitting
‘I carry your heart in my heart’.
