Here we are: Day 2 of the second ever countdown to the April Poem-A-Day Challenge! Let's keep the momentum going!
For today’s prompt, write a cause and effect poem. When I was a young boy, I liked to run everywhere in my bare feet, which meant I stepped on bees a few summers in a row. Cause and effect. I also liked to splash in puddles...at the expense of dry socks. So think of some cause-effect scenarios and let your poems run barefoot through puddles (metaphorically speaking).
Remember: These prompts are springboards to creativity. Use them to expand your possibilities, not limit them.
