Sorry, early risers! I slept in a little this morning.
For today’s prompt, write a blind poem. Three blind mice, blindfolded, “she blinded me with science,” “houston in the blind,” and so on. Maybe this is the one poem you try to write with your eyes closed.
Write a Poem for a Chance at $1,000!
Writer’s Digest has extended the deadline to their Writer’s Digest Poetry Awards competition to November 21. As you may have guessed from the bold statement above, the winner will receive $1,000 cash!
The winning poem will also be published in a future issue of Writer’s Digest magazine. And the winning poet will receive a copy of the 2015 Poet’s Market.
Even poets who don’t win can win, because there are prizes for 2nd through 25th place as well.
Here’s my attempt at a Blind poem:
by the light of the moon
reflecting off your eyes
in the heart of my swoon
that releases the sighs
of a thousand balloons
in the dead of the night
enveloped in your gloom
but still feeling all right
