Wednesday Poetry Prompts: 190

Publish date:

For this week's prompt, write an appointment poem. Could be a doctor's appointment, an appointment with a literary agent, or a dentist's appointment (which is enough to get my boys scared stiff). Don't miss your appointment with poetry this week. Poem, poem, poem!

Here's my attempt at an appointment poem:


We meet beneath the stars, though we call them
daggers reminding us why we sneak out
in the first place. This park, with its swings and
silence, keeps us shielded from our parents--
so afraid we'll repeat their mistakes they
hold us apart in the day, but now we
have our chance to play and now we have our
chance to play. Now we have our chance to play.
