Monday Poetry Prompt: Foolhardy

This week let’s write a foolhardy poem. We’ve got nothing left to lose, let’s go with most harebrained scheme we can think of and see what happens. Things can’t get any worse, can they? Post your answer in the comments below.

Monday Poetry Prompt: Idioms

This week let’s write a poem based on an idiom. Take an idiom like “beating a dead horse”, “easy as pie” or “wild goose chase” then expand upon it poetically, maybe even improve upon it. Preach to the choir in the comments below.

September Visual Poetry Prompt

Post your labors in the comments below.

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.

Monday Poetry Prompt: Unacceptable

This week let’s write an unacceptable poem. The poem itself needs to be acceptable, assuming we want to get published, but the subject does not. Post your unacceptable response in the comments below.  

Monday Poetry Prompt: Late

This week let’s write a late poem. As an habitually early person, it shames me to be a day late with the prompt. Forgive me by posting a poem in the comments below.

Monday Poetry Prompt: Limitless

This week let’s write a limitless poem. There are lots of limits placed on us during our daily lives but there are no limits in poetry. Post your rebellion in the comments below.  

August Visual Poetry Prompt

My apologies on the late prompt posting. At least you didn’t have to wait as long as he did. Don’t make your poetry wait to be posted to the comments below.
