My stepson’s fifth birthday extravaganza soldiers on today, which means my time is limited for the intro to the prompt. By 2pm, I need to have a cake baked, a meatloaf loafed, and chili simmered. I think I can do it.
For today’s prompt, I want you to write a dream poem–or dream-like poem. This may or may not work with certain themes, so remember: You don’t have to follow every prompt if it doesn’t jive with your theme. In the meantime, I think I just heard the stove beep that it’s at 350 degrees. Gotta run.
Here’s my attempt for the day:
He comes when the night is silent;
he comes as a wisp of fog;
he comes as a giant bat;
he comes when no one else is near;
he comes to my side;
he comes with his beautiful teeth;
he comes with his ancient eyes;
he comes to take me as his bride.
