After today's poem, we'll have made it through the first two weeks of April. Woot!
For today's prompt, write a poem inspired only by stimulus from where you're sitting (or standing, if you write will standing). In the past, I've written poems about pencils, characters in books I can see, and things I can see out my window when using this prompt. So consider your immediate surroundings and poem away today.
Remember: These prompts are springboards to creativity. Use them to expand your possibilities, not limit them.

Here’s my attempt at a "From Where You're Sitting" Poem:
how many birds descend
before taking off again
how many bees buzz by
on their way to honey
how many days have passed
since i last dreamed of you
