Wednesday Poetry Prompts: 227

Hello, all! I’m on vacation this week, and I’m determined to do no work (well, almost no work). So in keeping with this week’s plan, here’s today’s prompt…

For this week, write a summer poem. Summer can be a good thing–a relaxing time at the beach or on a deck reading a book, for instance. However, summer can also be a time when temperatures rise and tempers flare.

Here’s my attempt at a summer poem:


A shower, a book
left flapping open
in the breeze.

In the distance,
laughter and
water splashing.
