I hope your poeming is coming along so far. If you want to incorporate a poetic form, here's a list of poetic forms to play with.
For today's prompt, take the phrase "How to (blank)," replace the blank with a word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then, write your poem. Possible titles might include: "How to Win at Life," "How to Cook Lasagna," "How to Fall in Love," and/or "How to Write a Poem."
Remember: These prompts are springboards to creativity. Use them to expand your possibilities, not limit them.
