Today is kind of a momentous day for this challenge. It begins week three of the challenge, and once you've finished today's poem, you'll be at the half-way mark!
Also, it's our third Two-for-Tuesday prompt:
- Write a thoughtful poem, and/or...
- Write a thoughtless poem.
Remember: These prompts are springboards to creativity. Use them to expand your possibilities, not limit them.

Play with poetic forms!
Poetic forms are fun poetic games, and this digital guide collects more than 100 poetic forms, including more established poetic forms (like sestinas and sonnets) and newer invented forms (like golden shovels and fibs).
Here’s my attempt at a Thoughtful and/or Thoughtless Poem:
that i contemplate
the thought of
thoughtless things previously
done to and by me
(For my example, I chose to write a shadorma.)
