2011 November PAD Chapbook Challenge: Day 20

Publish date:

Well, I still haven't slept since my Day 19 prompt. That will be remedied soon enough, but I wanted to get today's prompt and poem up before sleeping in. I started yesterday in Georgia, made it up to Ohio (grabbed my sons Ben and Jonah), and am now back where I started (in Georgia)--more than 19 hours later. Whew! (I apologize in advance for any typos, missing words, etc.--I'm exhausted.)

For today's prompt, write a best ever poem. Now, don't stress out. I don't expect everyone to write the best poem ever written--however, you're allowed to aim for that if you wish. No, I'm asking you to write a poem about the best ever something. For instance, the best ever kiss, best ever dance, best ever party, best ever comeback, best ever moment, etc. Think about your personal "bests" and then write one (or three).

Here's my attempt:

"Best Ever Triolet"

I tried to write a triolet.
Though it wasn't the best ever,
I needed a fun game to play.
I tried to write a triolet,
because the rhymes fell fast today.
Don't think it's because I'm clever
I tried to write a triolet.
Know it wasn't the best ever.
