Well, this is the last Wednesday Poetry Prompts until December, because we'll be poeming every single day in the month of November. If you haven't checked out the 2011 November PAD Chapbook Challenge guidelines, click here now.

*****

For this prompt, write an "until we meet again" poem. I guess, this could also be a "see you later, gator" poem or "shhh...no good-byes" poem. I plan to see everyone on November 1 with prompt and poem in hand (or on blog).

Here's my attempt:

"For the girl who always finds me in bookstores"

I'll wait in the poetry section
between Bly and Dickinson
thinking of a poem to write
& lay by your head tonight.
