If you want something fun to keep you occupied in May, check out my list of more than 160 poetic forms. Each form includes guidelines and an example poem to show how the form works!
For today's prompt, write a thought poem. Of course, my first thought (maybe like yours) is, "Aren't all poems thought poems?" Well, I guess, but I'm thinking of a poem that captures a thought or random ramblings running 'round your cranium. It doesn't have to be a rambling poem, but that's one thing. Another possibility is having two people share their thoughts with each other and/or NOT share them. Think about it a moment and then unleash your thought poem.
Remember: These prompts are springboards to creativity. Use them to expand your possibilities, not limit them.

Here’s my attempt at a Thought Poem:
"everything that could go wrong (& how to fix it)"
broken bones missed deadlines heartbreaks heart aches
stubbed toes frost bite quicksand jokes at my expense
headaches fevers mean words & i thought of all the ways
there were to die & the certainty i would someday be dead
& decided i want to live knowing death always prevails
anyway & for a moment i felt brave just to catch my breath
