2013 April PAD Challenge: Day 30

Today is the final day. We made it! Tomorrow, we’ll revert back to our Wednesday Poetry Prompts, though I won’t be surprised if quite a few poets take a breather. I’m also hoping to post the wrap-up post tomorrow. So watch for it. For today’s prompt, which is a Two-for-Tuesday prompt, pick one (or...

2013 April PAD Challenge: Day 29

After today, there’s just tomorrow. How did we get through April so fast? For today’s prompt, take a line from one of your poems (preferably one of your April poems), make it the title of your poem today, and then, write the poem. Here’s my attempt: “unseen until after they’re spent” moments without any...

2013 April PAD Challenge: Day 28

Only three days left! Let’s push to the summit. For today’s prompt, write a shadorma. For those new to the shadorma, it’s a fun little 6-line poem that follows this syllable count: 3/5/3/3/7/5. Here’s my attempt at a shadorma: “mornings after” maybe she won’t need him again maybe she knows that he is just...

2013 April PAD Challenge: Day 19

Whew! We’re nearly 3 weeks into this challenge. Let’s keep the poems flowing. For today’s prompt, write a burn poem. I actually wrote a poem titled “burn” earlier in this month’s challenge, so I’m going to have to think a little on this to avoid repeating what I’ve already written. However, burn can represent...

2013 April PAD Challenge: Day 16

Before getting into the prompt today, I just wanted to take a moment to recognize what happened in Boston yesterday. I don’t have anything exceptionally new to offer, but you are all in my prayers. Sometimes, I just want to give the entire planet a big hug and hit the re-set button. Today’s prompt...
