May the April shower of prompts flower into poems in the comments below.

Monday Poetry Prompt: Yuri’s Night

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.

Monday Poetry Prompt: Quirk

This week let’s write a quirk poem. Quirks can be humorous, harmless or they can reveal something sinister. It’s up to you. Post your quirk in the comments below. (BTW, in the anime series My Hero Academia a “quirk” is kind of like a superpower.)

This week let’s write a tap poem. You know that sound, as if someone were gently rapping, rapping at your chamber door. One can be tapped on the shoulder or tapped to do a job or all tapped out. Don’t be late (like I was with this prompt) post your poems in the comments below.

Monday Poetry Prompt: Polygon

This week let’s write a polygon poem. Have your poem feature a polygon of some form: a pentagon, a hexagon, an octagon, etc. Don’t be a square, post your polygonal poems in the comments below.
