Monday Poetry Prompt: Governor, Sunflower, Warm

This week let’s write a poem with the words governor, sunflower and warm in it. This is another of those prompts where I randomly choose three words from a list of the top 1000 words in the English language plus a few of my favorites. Post your poems in the comments below.

  1. My love
    in layers of wool
    wrapped and warm
    I knocked the governor
    to a radiator derelict
    paint-smothered and cold
    in a room
    where sunflowers
    bowed toward her beauty
    she smiled to me
    as the windows
    leaky and iced
    slowly start to melt
    in a trifold radiance
    of the moment

  2. there were 10 syllables in the prompt today, so I only had 10 to work with:

    Buy a sunflower
    My babies are cold, gov’nor
    Help me keep them warm

  3. If love governed our courts
    and beauty built our cities
    then we would be as warm
    as van Gogh’s sunflowers.

  4. Raleigh
    North Carolina
    Governed by Cooper
    Has beautiful sunflowers
    At Dorothea Dix
    it’s warm
    In fact it’s hot
    You are invited
    Poetry welcomed
    when you’re done
    share your experience
    of golds, oranges, reds
    and greens
    and bees
