2013 November PAD Chapbook Challenge: Day 16
For today’s prompt, write a half-way poem. The poem might deal with a half-way point in time. Or perhaps, a place in the dead center of here and there–in a physical sense. Even a compromise on terms in a negotiation can work.
2013 November PAD Chapbook Challenge: Day 17
Whew! These are the dog days of the challenge, right? The middle wasteland, but remember: “The Wasteland” is like a pretty incredible poem (for some folks anyway). As we wander in the desert of the November PAD Chapbook Challenge, be sure to let your mind wander and maybe a mirage or two will spring into a keeper.
For today’s prompt, write an element poem. Maybe an element from the periodic table (hydrogen, oxygen, etc.). Maybe an element of surprise?!? Or a missing element, which could refer to a person, tool, or poem. Run wild with it.
I had to study The Wasteland for A-level English, it was good to re-read it today without having to dissect the meanings.
2013 November PAD Chapbook Challenge: Day 18
Mondays feel so much better when we’re poeming. Well, I feel that way anyway, and I hope at least a few others do too.
For today’s prompt, write a “forget what I said earlier” poem. This poem could be a response to a poem you wrote earlier in the challenge (or just earlier in general). Or it could cover one of those moments–I have them all the time–when you say something that ends up proving wrong or that you wish you’d taken back.
I can’t wait to catch up with the poems in this challenge – I have my work cut out though!
