For today’s prompt, write a gift poem. Giving gifts, receiving gifts, coveting the gifts of others, admiring gifts, planning gifts, and so on. Consider this prompt a gift from me.
Here’s my attempt at a gift poem:
Each morning a gift–
the outline of tree branches
conducting bird songs.
Publish your haiku!
Poet’s Market lists poetry publications that accept a variety of poetic forms (and non-forms). From experimental poetry to haiku, the 2014 Poet’s Market has a destination for your poems.
Robert Lee Brewer is Senior Content Editor of the Writer’s Digest Writing Community, author of Solving the World’s Problems, and happy to celebrate the gift of his family today (and every day). Santa visited last night and left plenty of goodies for the kiddos this morning, though he enjoyed his gift of cookies and milk (or so his note indicated). Robert would like to wish everyone a safe and Happy New Year! Follow him on Twitter @robertleebrewer.
