Happy New Year! This is the first post of 2018, so let’s have fun with it.
For today’s prompt, write a password poem. Write about someone using passwords, creating a password, or hide a password (or words) in your poem (perhaps, a la acrostic poem). Have fun with it.
The 2018 Poet’s Market, edited by Robert Lee Brewer, includes hundreds of poetry markets, including listings for poetry publications, publishers, contests, and more! With names, contact information, and submission tips, poets can find the right markets for their poetry and achieve more publication success than ever before.
In addition to the listings, there are articles on the craft, business, and promotion of poetry–so that poets can learn the ins and outs of writing poetry and seeking publication. Plus, it includes a one-year subscription to the poetry-related information on WritersMarket.com. All in all, it’s the best resource for poets looking to secure publication.
Here’s my attempt at a Password Poem:
“What Could It Be?”
A smile? A handshake? A knowing look?
I wonder what’s the password to your
heart; could it be reading the right book?
I don’t know the answer, but I’ll try
to discover the key to your door–
maybe a poem or gentle, “Hi.”
