And on the seventh day, we rest. Nope, no rest for us NaPoWriMo devotees, Poem-a-Day challengers. So, getting on with it: Robert Lee Brewer's prompt today is "write a poem describing a scene in which two or more people interact without speaking."
Catherine's poem of the day works from this prompt, establishing a scene in which the interacting but not speaking two are not even in the same place. Genius.
Today, Maureen Thorson of NaPoWriMo.net suggests this prompt: "Pick a color, any color. And now write a poem in which everything is that color (or, at least, that color predominates). . . . And remember, the poem doesn’t have to be “about” the color — just dyed with it."
My own poetic offering of the day takes place in a Philippine rural area on the night before Easter — that's what today actually is, friends — and tries to work both of Robert's and Maureen's prompts.
Okay, friends in the art of poetry, there goes a week of National Poetry Month beauties and gems. At least, so we hope. Won't you tell us what you think? Comment below, please. Join us here again for another week of poetry. Ingat.
