Wednesday Poetry Prompts: 145

Publish date:

For this week's prompt, write an escape poem. The poem could about someone or something that is thinking of escape, has escaped, or has lost someone or something that has escaped. And remember: Escape can be a physical thing but also emotional, psychological, etc.

Here's my attempt:

"Autumn escape"

The leaf releases itself from the tree
and falls into the creek water below
only to get caught by a fallen branch.
