Day 2′s prompt comes from Khara House.
Here’s Khara’s prompt: Write a full moon poem. The full moon might be a character or symbol in the poem. Or the poem might address what happens during a full moon: magic, mischief, madness, etc.
Robert’s attempt at a full moon poem:
Nevermind the words they write about us
or the stuff hidden from our view. All these
beautiful people unleashed on the world
are nothing compared to you. No magic
spells can turn us into monsters, and no
transformations will ever make me hide.
In the middle of the night, when the sun’s
reflecting bright, I’ll be your satellite.
All right, get poeming! And be sure to visit Khara’s blog.
If you need a little music to get in the mood, here are some of my favorite moon songs:
- Me and the Moon, by The Drums
- Moondance, by Van Morrison
- My Moon My Man, by Feist
- Bad Moon Rising, by Creedence Clearwater Revival
- The Killing Moon, by Echo & the Bunnymen
Also, in case you missed it on Facebook, Poetic Asides was mentioned in the November issue of O, the Oprah Magazine for the Wednesday Poetry Prompts. Click here to read the article.
