Hey guys, I missed yesterday’s prompt! * insert sad face * There were other things I had to deal with, hence by the time I remember the prompt it was today morning. But I still did it, and yesterday’s prompt was to use the words next to your birthday month and write a poem with 5 stanzas beginning with those exact words. My birthday is this month (6 days to be exact and I’m super excited!) and the words next to April was – ‘Pray like‘. I’m really happy with this poem, cause it’s pretty concise (given the topic i chose to write about) and I felt I was able to convey my thoughts pretty well. But that’s what I think, let me know what you do? 🙂
Without further ado, here’s day 7’s poem – titled Pray.
Here’s Day 8’s poem, which is based on the prompt – ‘Use the last line of your favourite poem as the first line of your poem for today.’ I picked The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost, as it’s one of the earliest poem’s I properly remember studying in school, and it’s imagery has stayed with me since then. (I actually was thinking of writing it based on Frost’s Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening – cause the line ‘Miles to go before I sleep, miles to go before I sleep’ is one of my favourite lines from any poem that I’ve ever read! Needless to say I won’t continue talking about this, cause then I may have a word-vomit moment and may not stop explaining my self.) My poem’s tone is contradictory to the original poem’s, so let me know what you think about that.
The poem is titled Forest, and begins in approximately 3…. 2….. 1.
