It’s a two-for-Tuesday prompt today. Here are the prompts:
- Write a stacking poem. The poem could be about stacking objects. Or it could be about stacking ideas, stacking the deck, stacking the odds against something happening, etc.
- Write an unstacking poem. Just the opposite of the first prompt. Unstack objects or tear down the obstacles stacked in your way, etc.
Here’s my attempt:
“Flights to Dayton”
Forget the distance from here to there;
pay no heed to the reasons why it won’t work;
ignore the impulse to never try;
listen only to the sound of your heart as you think maybe;
then, make it happen.
