I apologize for the late prompt this week, but it’s just been one of those days (and weeks, for that matter). Nothing horrible, just busy.
For this week’s prompt, take the phrase “I’ll Believe It When (blank),” replace the blank with a word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then write your poem. Some possible titles include: “I’ll Believe It When I See It,” “I’ll Believe It When Pigs Fly,” “I’ll Believe It When There’s More Than Just Words,” etc.
Here’s my attempt:
“I’ll Believe It When the Poem”
breaks open in my hand like bread
I might feed to gold fish in the pond
we circle every night after work as
if we form our own little school of
two fish swimming in any direction
the currents take us as long as we
stay within a fin’s length of the other’s
thoughts, something we always do.
