Wednesday Poetry Prompts: 468

Publish date:

For today’s prompt, write a note poem. My first thought is that this is a poem written as a short note to someone. Maybe a list of tasks to perform, a note about the state of the house, or a love note. But there are also musical notes. And I can't help but note that there are probably other ways to make notations in poetic form. So have at it.

Here’s my attempt at a Note Poem:

“Good morning”

The chickens are fed
and the children off

to school or a pool
filled with schools of fish,

but you can find me
working in the field

and biding my time
to get home for lunch.
