For today’s prompt, write a music poem. Write about your favorite song, band, performer. Or write about your distaste for music. Just mention a tune in passing, or write a poem that responds to a song.

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.

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.

Here’s my attempt at a Music Poem:

“Playing Favorites”

When my kids ask my favorite tune,
I am at a loss for what to say.
Answers change before and after noon
when my kids ask my favorite tune
and altered by the phase of the moon
or whether I have had a rough day.
When my kids ask my favorite tune,
there are so many I want to play.
