We’re now 3 weeks into April! And to celebrate, we get a 2-for-Tuesday prompt. Hurrah!
Here are the two prompts for the day (you only need to choose one, unless you’re all about pushing yourself to the limit):
1. Write a haiku. The haiku is not just a form but a genre of poetry. (Click here to read more about the haiku.) People sometimes go into writing a haiku and end up with a senryu or a faux-ku, but it’s all good (and all poetry).
2. Write about the haiku. I know there are some poets (in this very group even) who are anti-form. So, I’m giving them the option to write their anti-haiku manifestos. Of course, if you pay attention to this 2nd prompt, it doesn’t need to be anti-haiku; your poem could be questioning or even praising the haiku. Or something.
Here’s my attempt for the day:
covering the car hood;
hidden bird poop.
