Monday Poetry Prompt: Extraneous


This week let’s write an extraneous poem. I am of the opinion that a poem should have the precise number of words required, no more, no less, but we can still write about the extraneous things cluttering our lives. Post your hat on a cat in the comments below.

  1. Crouched in the scraggly, wilted weeds
    growing under the weathered, faded, splintered wooden fence
    crouched a feral feline, dirty, bedraggled and thin.
    A few hand painted ceramic bowls
    of expensive, premium cat food
    he had been trapped and transformed
    into a floufy, poufy, prince of a puss.

    Author’s note: I needed every one of these adjectives. Not a one is “extraneous.”
