PAD, Poetry Prompts

2019 April PAD Challenge: Day 7

Reminder: for April we’re following Robert Lee Brewer’s April Poem-a-day Challenge. This was yesterday’s prompt:

For today’s prompt, write a jealous poem. Maybe you’re jealous. Or maybe someone else is jealous of you–or someone else. Whether envious of another or suspicious of a partner, dive deep into this emotion today.

  1. Is the land jealous of the sea?
    Is the wind jealous of the tree?
    Or is it only humans
    with our sentience and short life spans
    that desire what we cannot have?
    We are like children in the grown-up cosmos:
    petulant, silly and self-centered.
    We learned too well
    the lessons of Mount Olympus.
