This is the furthest I have made it. Whoo hoo! I don’t know how y’all do this every year. I mean, a poem a day?
Hello, everyone. You will have noticed I am not opening as usual, although I am listening to Joy to the World by Three Dog Night and I note the time is two hours later than I usually post, but there was this poem I had to write.
It occurred to me somewhere in the middle of the night that to give you a prompt during this month would be like carrying the proverbial coals to Newcastle. The last thing you need is MORE prompts. So, on April’s Tuesdays, I’ll post reminder links and, if I am lucky, a poem. This also saves your inbox which will already get two posts from me on Thursdays and Fridays, during April — I remain highly optimistic.
Today’s prompt is from Poets & Writers which asks for an ekphrastic poem. I chose Edvard Munch’s The Scream because that is the first painting I saw when arriving at MoMA’s site.
pulled for revision
It’s rough, but for poem a day, I’m not sure what else it can be! Always feel free to make comments and suggestions, should they appear in your thoughts as you read a poem.
I’ll see you Thursday for a couple of links; Friday for the roundup; and next Tuesday for another poem and chit-chat.
Happy writing, all.
