We’re in the middle of summer now. Some heavy summer showers are crashing down right outside my window as I type. It’s a great morning to write a poem.
For this week’s prompt, write an informative poem. This poem could give directions, share news from the outside world, or in some other way inform the reader. In fact, it could be argued many poems are already informative poems.
Here’s my attempt at an informative poem:
A green blob will grow a yellow yolk
with a tight red center. The green blob
will move up the map in a morphing
fashion–that is, it will expand and
contract (that is, the blob will move in
mysterious ways); it may release
a lot of rain, produce lightning, and
send children running to open arms.
