Hope National Poetry Month has started well for everyone. I’m recapitulating yesterday’s prompt from the Write Better Poetry blog by Robert Lee Brewer.
For today’s prompt, write an active poem. That could be a poem comprised of active (vs passive) verbs. But it could also be about exercising, playing a sport, or keeping your mind active. Any activity would do, I suppose, even watching the paint dry.
Feel free to post the poem you wrote to this prompt in the comments below. You can also post a link to your blog, if you’ve taken up the poem-a-day challenge. Here’s the first stanza of my poem:
The trees are active tonight—
I can hear them outside my window
shuffling in the early spring breeze
like college kids primping for a party.
