For the 2019 November PAD Chapbook Challenge, poets are tasked with writing a poem a day in the month of November before assembling a chapbook manuscript in the month of December. Today's prompt is to write a Health Poem.
For today’s prompt, write a health poem. It can be about any sort of health: mental, physical, psychological, emotional, etc. Or the health of your stock portfolio or personal garden. Writing about health class or a health study is fair game too.
Quick note on commenting: I'm not sure how fast the comments will approve. I'm hoping they'll display immediately, but if they go into moderation, just know that I'll approve each and every one (that's not spammy or offensive) as soon as I'm able.
Recreate Your Poetry!
Revision doesn’t have to be a chore—something that has to be done after the joy of the first draft. In fact, revision should be viewed as an enjoyable extension of the creation process—something that you want to experience after the joy of the first draft.
Learn the three rules of revision, seven revision filters, common excuses for avoiding revision (and how to overcome them), and more in this power-packed poetry revision tutorial.
Here’s my attempt at a Health Poem:
I love writing most of the time,
but especially when I'm down.
Maybe it's the words or the rhyme,
but I love writing most the time
unraveling my thoughts so I'm
able to hold impending frowns.
So I love writing most of the time,
but it saves me when I'm down.
