Wednesday Poetry Prompts: 210

Tomorrow is V-Day, so there’ll be plenty of chocolates, kissing, fighting, and lonely hearts out there as a result.

For today’s prompt, I’ve actually got two options:

  1. Write a valentine poem.
  2. Write an anti-love poem.

Here’s my attempt at a Valentine Poem:

“rain”

there’s a creek down this hill
that collects all the rain
falling on this morning

like lovers leaping off
the moon & transforming
into bright shooting stars

the creek collects the rain
& distributes the rain
so that each drop becomes

something more impressive
an army of raindrops
feeding deer & lilies

feeding the way we kiss
under this tree that’s fed
as the army rushes

past us over pebbles
& tearing at the earth
wanting to fall in love

    A little late, but- whatever.

    Though I seem not to care,
    What you think means the world to me.
    And when the world’s just too much to bear,
    Forever for you here I will be.
