Poem A Day Challenge: April 16-17


The 2015 April Poem A Day Challenge continues with two days of incredibly tough prompts (at least they were for a haiku poet!). I did my best and here’s what I came up with to meet the challenge:

April 16, 2015
Prompt: science

pushed by the moon
shimmering waves
rise on the shore

trees are more
constant than screens
that light up

– – –

April 17, 2015
Prompt: swing

after it rains
beads of water gleam
on the porch swing

for a moment
I fly
on the old tree swing

sycamore seeds swing
on summer branches
early morning rain

– – –

c.b.w. 2015
