I hope everyone is having a productive National Poetry Month. I’m hijacking the daily prompt from Robert Lee Brewer’s Write Better Poetry blog for this special anniversary.
Today let’s write a poem celebrating human spaceflight since it’s the 60th anniversary of the first human to orbit the earth, Yuri Gagarin in Vostok 1. It’s also the 40th anniversary of the first space shuttle launch and has become a worldwide holiday and a great excuse to party called Yuri’s Night.
Let the final frontier inspire you to heavens then bring your poem down to earth and post it in comments below. Let’s Go!
