Day 21 . . . three full weeks of National Poetry Month gone, one more week plus small change.
Maureen Thorson’s NaPoWriMo prompt: "[W]rite a poem in the voice of minor character from a fairy tale or myth. Instead of writing from the point of view of Cinderella, write from the point of view of the mouse who got turned into a coachman. Instead of writing from the point of view of Orpheus or Eurydice, write from the point of view of one of the shades in Hades who watched Eurydice leave and then come back."
Robert Lee Brewer’s PAD prompt: "For today’s prompt, write a poem that responds (or somehow communicates) with another poem. You can respond to any poem."
Jed was first up again today, responding to the NaPoWriMo prompt.
Alan merged both prompts today, channeling the fictional painter Frà Pandolf from Robert Browning's poem "My Last Duchess."
My Last Commission
My poem today channels the supernumerary royal groom in Ann Sexton's poem "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs."
Prince Charming Speaks
Ven went rogue today with this list poem. Thanks, Ven!
I don't know if you've heard the news, but Prince is dead. Long live Prince's music. A sad day indeed.
