Monday Poetry Prompt: Deep


This week let’s write a deep poem. Lots of things can be deep, oceans, snow, thoughts. Post your deepities in the comments below.

(Note: we’re less than ten days from National Poetry Month and, because of the pandemic, Robert Lee Brewer has already started publishing daily prompts on his Poetic Asides blog in anticipation of the April Poem-A-Day Challenge. I encourage all poets to check it out.)

  1. The Sea

    When I was little I was weak
    Dreams I had seem too young ago
    Now I am strong enough to walk miles to the deep
    The dead calm under the water revitalises my soul
    As a young man I saw visions
    A fish twisted into a spiral preying on ships
    My life worn heart unrests in sleep confusion
    Leviathan tangles with my spirit in a dream script

  3. Deep in the trenches
    Bracing for nature’s flinging
    Pollen for the score
    Dare I say gone tomorrow
    Coughing now brings such alarm
