For today’s prompt, write a bird poem. You can make the title of your poem a specific type of bird and write from there. Or you can mention a bird (or several birds) in passing in your poem. Maybe poeticize the movements of a giant flock. Or take it in a completely different and creative direction.
Remember: These prompts are springboards to creativity. Use them to expand your possibilities, not limit them.

Here’s my attempt at a Bird Poem:
& then a bird told a story
about giant fish & their tales
how long & unreliable
they are & how they often smell
of magical thinking when they
should merely focus on the truth
for reality is better
than a rose-colored kissing booth
