Poem A Day Challenge: April 11-12

Standard

The April Poem A Day Challenge is still going strong! So far, I haven’t a missed a day! Hope you’re enjoying National Poetry Month!

Here’s two more of my entries in the challenge:

April 11, 2014
Prompt: Create a statement and make it your title. Then, write a poem that responds to it or expands upon it.

For A Limited Time Only

Cue the countdown,
days are numbered
Fences are few,
so don’t hold back

Get up and stand,
rather than kneel
With just one shot,
everything counts

Toes to the edge,
dare to look down
Take a deep breath,
inhale the sky

Inspiration: I saw an infomercial with the title phrase and then I thought about how I always put my toes to the edge of a cliff, (seriously!).

April 12, 2014
Prompt: Write a city poem.

A concret forest
replaces trees and fields
The roots go missing

Inspiration: My mother recently found out urban sprawl will be invading her rural ranch. Such a sad occurrence needed a poem.

Happy Poeming!
