Wow! That was an exciting first day of poeming. Today, we're actually going to do something a little different than normal (on the second day already).
For today's prompt, I want you to answer the question, "What does the future hold?" Then, make your answer the title of your poem and write your poem. Your answer could a general idea about the future like "Robots Will Rule the World" or a more personal thing like "Veggie Pizza and Sweet Tea." Even if it's not in your title, I'm hopeful the future holds a lot more poeming.
Remember: These prompts are springboards to creativity. Use them to expand your possibilities, not limit them.

Here’s my attempt at a What Does the Future Hold Poem:
the metaphor is a simile
surrounded by outer space in a hollow pumpkin
juggle the smuggled apostrophes
& we all wish to dance in the street
birds are smoke birds like smoke
(For today's poem, I wrote a descort. Find more the guidelines for this poetic form and more than 160 others here.)
