For today’s prompt, write a quiet poem. I know many people with a quiet voice. While it may not come across online, I have a very quiet personality in group settings. Many of us may be living in very quiet surroundings at the moment. Of course, it's possible your current situation is anything but quiet—feel encouraged to write those poems too!

Remember: These prompts are just springboards; you have the freedom to jump in any direction you want.

Revision doesn’t have to be a chore–something that should be done after the excitement of composing the first draft. Rather, it’s an extension of the creation process!

"Early Bird"

Mornings before the others wake
are my favorite mornings by far.
With no reasons to give or take
on mornings when no one's awake,
I find that I will often make
the time to read or drive my car.
Mornings before the others wake
are my favorite mornings by far.
