Poem A Day Challenge: April 29-30


Here are my final two entries for the  April Poem A Day Challenge . . .

April 29, 2014
Prompt: Two for Tuesday – Write a poem rooted in the real world and/or incorporate magical or fantastical elements.

Pearl gravel,
lava flow
Icebergs melt
as flames grow

Matchstick trees,
withered leaves
Salted shores,
crystal dust

Sweetened air,
sugared breath
Sunset sparks,
bitter taste

Inspiration: While in my writer’s group, one of the prompts was an image of a flame. I decided to fuse that prompt with the challenge prompt to see if I’d get anything interesting.

April 30, 2014
Prompt: Write a “calling it a day” poem

Orange and coral
caress the sky with goodbye
A blue moon rises

Inspiration: As I was sitting down to write, the sun was beginning to set. I couldn’t ignore the coincidence!
