It's taken nearly a week, but we've finally made it to our first Two-for-Tuesday prompt of the month! For those of you new to "Two-for-Tuesday" prompts, you can pick one of the prompts, try to write both, and/or try to combine them into one poem. Your choice.
For today’s Two-for-Tuesday prompt:
- Write a lost poem. Or...
- Write a found poem.
Do You Have a $1,000 Poem?
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 Lost and/or Found Poem:
“& if you look”
& if you look
you may find me
among the lost
searching for what
we wish we knew
