Maureen Thorson's NaPoWriMo prompt: Because today marks the halfway point in our 30-day sprint, today I’d like to challenge you to write a poem that incorporates the idea of doubles. You could incorporate doubling into the form, for example, by writing a poem in couplets. Or you could make doubles the theme of the poem, by writing, for example, about mirrors or twins, or simply things that come in pairs. Or you could double your doublings by incorporating things-that-come-in-twos into both your subject and form. Happy writing!
Robert Lee Brewer's PAD prompt: Write a poem with at least four of the following eight words:
Of course, ambitious poets will immediately try using all eight words, but four will do if you’re just trying to get through today’s prompt.
Sarah is first up today, using the eight words in order, one per couplet. Great way to mix the prompts, Sarah!
In the Name of Love
Ven also mixed the prompts, incorporating all eight words into his massive opening couplet. But he doubles his doubles
Jedediah mixed the prompts with a sword-and-sorcery narrative that employed all eight words.
I went for a narrative too, like Jed. To mix the prompts I used the eight words in order in couplets, like Sarah, but one per line. Thanks, guys.
And here's Alan's take on Brewer's eight words, all of them contained in that long first sentence.
Thanks for the hump day poems, everyone! Half down, half more to go. Entering the downhill slide to home!
