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 Pet Poem.
For today’s prompt, write a pet poem. The poem can be about a pet of yours, like a dog, fish, or rock. Or perhaps, the poem can be about a pet name, pet project, or pet peeve.
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 Pet Poem:
He prowls around our yard before
moving along to another,
returns to eat by our back door
and prowls around our yard some more,
though we have never heard him roar.
He's less a pet, more a brother
prowling around our yard before
moving always to another.
