2012 November PAD Chapbook Challenge: Day 20

Publish date:

Today's prompt, a Two-for-Tuesday prompt, comes from Sarah Bartlett.

Here are Sarah's prompts:

  1. Write a gathering poem.
  2. Write a letting go poem.

Robert's attempt a gathering and letting go poem:


One-by-one, the birds abandon their nests
to gather along power lines and tree branches
from which they launch into the sky. First,
in small groups, but then, they grow larger
and larger until, like a wave, they swell and
swirl before letting go for something new.
