For today’s prompt, write a second home poem. Most people have a first home--even if it's just the place where you lay your head or stash your heart. But many people also have a second home--a place that is like a home away from home. Write a poem about such a place today.
Pre-order the new Poet’s Market!
The new 2018 Poet’s Market, edited by Robert Lee Brewer, includes hundreds of poetry markets, including listings for poetry publications, publishers, contests, and more! With names, contact information, and submission tips, poets can find the right markets for their poetry and achieve more publication success than ever before.
In addition to the listings, there are articles on the craft, business, and promotion of poetry–so that poets can learn the ins and outs of writing poetry and seeking publication. Plus, it includes a one-year subscription to the poetry-related information on WritersMarket.com. All in all, it’s the best resource for poets looking to secure publication.
Here’s my attempt at a Second Home Poem:
& suddenly my home
is no longer my home.
& suddenly i've flown
to the place where i've flown.
& suddenly when i visit
i swing in only for a visit.
& suddenly my ohio
has become my georgia.
