2012 November PAD Chapbook Challenge: Day 22

Publish date:

Happy Thanksgiving! I'm always so thankful for these challenges, and the community that's formed around this blog. I hope everyone, whether you live in the States or abroad, has a moment to reflect on something for which they're thankful not just today but every day.

Speaking of thankful, I'm thankful for today's prompt from Brenda Bishop Blakely.

Here's Brenda's prompt: Write a paradise poem. What is your idea of paradise? Is it a person, place, or thing? Maybe it is an idea which changes like weather changes. Is it simple or complex? It can be what ever you want it to be. Create your own paradise! Perhaps it is even paradise lost.

Robert's attempt at a Paradise Poem:


A pen, some paper, and a dirt trail,
your hand in mine without a map
or time to be "back," just an afternoon
to explore and witness and whatever
else might come naturally to us.


Thank you, Brenda, for the wonderful prompt! Click here to learn more about Brenda.
