We're now past the half-way mark. So let's keep poeming to the finish line!
For today’s prompt, write a brave poem. There are many instances of bravery each and every day. For some, bravery is running into a burning building to save a child or jumping out of an airplane to skydive. For others, bravery is getting out of bed and going to the post office. Or writing a poem. Be brave today!
Time is running out!
The 13th Annual Writer’s Digest Poetry Awards has extended its deadline to November 19, 2018.
And the winning poem receives $1,000 in cash!
Find the complete guidelines and available prizes here, but the competition is open to all poets for poems of 32 lines or fewer. Rhyming poems, non-rhyming poems, haiku, limericks, and so on.
Here’s my attempt at a Brave Poem:
leaves the nest -- morning glories
open their blossoms
