Daily Prompt: Tribute to National Poetry Month

Daily Prompt: Unleash Your Inner Dickinson

National Poetry Writing Month is nearly at at end. To celebrate it, try your hand at some verse.
  • Highlight the extraordinary legacy and ongoing achievement of American poets
  • Introduce more Americans to the pleasures of reading poetry
  • Bring poets and poetry to the public in immediate and innovative ways
  • Make poetry a more important part of the school curriculum
  • Increase the attention paid to poetry by national and local media
  • Encourage increased publication, distribution, and sales of poetry books
  • Increase public and private philanthropic support for poets and poetry


Reflections back upon a month, just thirty days to go
Perhaps your life was full of fun, perhaps full of woe
From start to end we have had the rain
Could it have effected my brain?

The thoughts are not rolling out as such
The words not flowing, not saying much
Perhaps the absence of coffee is why
This is so true I can not lie

The Prompt was to reflect on a month gone by
Perhaps it is best to let a sleeping dog lie
I plan to move forward and see what is new
The sky should be sunny, bright and blue

So this is my plan that I have decided
Perhaps my brain wont be so divided
Going this way and that doing ten different tasks
For each of them, wearing different masks

Perhaps I am different than the rest
As you read the Prompts  you will see the best
To be inspired by a prompt is so grand
Some days it boosts you to beat the band

Then other days the Prompt is dull and boring
To the point where it totally leaves me snoring
Perhaps tomorrow will be an inspiration indeed
That will take my writing into full speed
