Make You a Deal . . .

As today’s the first day of National Poetry Month, and as I’m a big fan of writing and sharing writing, and because Ben Grey sent me a link to a for the month of April, and because I’m not much of a fan of writing for competition, but I do like writing for folks . . . .

If I publish several “What might I write about?” type poem prompts throughout the month, would you be willing to write a poem or two, if you’re so inspired, post them here, or on your own spaces, and tag them with a common tag, that I’ll let you decide upon in the comments?  No pressure, just poetry.  Just writing and sharing.  Because we can.

Do we have a deal?  Let me know and I’ll start with some prompts.

    You absolutely have a deal.
    It’s been years since I’ve sat down
    and penned a poem, and I’m very much
    looking forward to pushing my writing a bit
    through this month’s celebration of poetry.

    I’m looking forward to the reading and writing.
    Thanks, Bud.

    For the record, this was my first poem. A free
    verse beauty that is sure to inspire the many.
    Or show people where the floor is from which they can work up with their poems.

    Candles burn bright with warm yellow heat;
    burning through cobwebs of human defeat.
    Their light giving process an old ancient trick;
    consuming the wax at the cost of the wick

    So I guess those’re yeses. Here’s a prompt for now. I don’t know if I’ll do this daily – someone who’s good with wikis might want to put a calendar together and folks can sign up for a different prompt every day.

    Do you accept really pathetic Acrostics?

    Franki agrees that this is a
    Really good idea and
    Agrees to give it a try
    No matter how busy she is
    Knowing that it is always fun to join
    In on a great celebration!

      Of course. But no disclaimers. We write what we write.

    Bud, thanks for the PLN opportunity. Will be sharing it with the SVVSD School Board. Here is my first poem – not from your prompts though.
