Tomorrow is the final day of the challenge. So let’s make these last couple days count.
For today’s prompt, write a do it again poem. This could be a poem about taking a mulligan or re-doing a mistake. Or maybe re-doing a magical moment. Or a poem for all those folks who like to ride roller coasters and get right back in line.
Get your poetry published!
Learn how to get your poetry published with the premiere book on publishing your poetry: the 2015 Poet’s Market, edited by the always lovable and encouraging Robert Lee Brewer.
This essential resource includes hundreds of listings for book publishers, magazines, journals, contests, grants, and so much more. Plus, there are articles on the craft of poetry, business of poetry, and promotion of poetry. Beyond that, there’s an hour-long webinar, a subscription to the poetry slice of WritersMarket.com, orginal poems, poet interviews, resources galore, and more-more-more!!!
Here’s my attempt at a Do It Again poem:
has been something incredible,
and I would do it all again
the exact same way, because
I wouldn’t want to trade the bad
experiences if it meant
I would not receive all the good,
and anyway, the gift of this life
isn’t getting everything right
but getting through it to the next.
