Write a poem every day of April with the 2020 April Poem-A-Day Challenge. For today's prompt, write a lucky and/or unlucky poem.
We're a week into the challenge now, and we get to celebrate with our first "Two-for-Tuesday" prompt! You can pick your favorite prompt, do both separately, or combine them into one poem. Your choice.
For today’s prompt:
- Write a lucky poem and/or...
- Write an unlucky poem.
Remember: These prompts are just springboards; you have the freedom to jump in any direction you want. In other words, it's more important to write a new poem than to stick to the prompt.
Re-create Your Poetry!
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!
In the 48-minute tutorial video Re-creating Poetry: How to Revise Poems, poets will be inspired with several ways to re-create their poems with the help of seven revision filters that they can turn to again and again.
Here’s my attempt at a Lucky and/or Unlucky Poem:
He says it's bad luck
when he misses, but
all him when he scores.
Maybe he's correct,
but I still expect
to beat him at H-O-R-S-E.
