Poem A Day Challenge: April 18-20


The poems just keep coming for the 2015 April Poem A Day Challenge! Just when I thought the prompts were challenging enough, April 18th happens. I’m still in awe of the difficulty level, but also of the responses the prompt incited from fellow poets. If you haven’t stopped by Poetic Asides this month, I highly recommend visiting the April 18th comments for some amazing poems, (click on the link below).

Prompt: Pick 2 vowels and write a poem using words that only contain one or both of those vowels.

midnight moon
glows on wings
in flight

dawn’s first light
gilds grass with
sparkling rays

April 19, 2015
Prompt: authority

rushing water
pushes stones
like feathers

clouds demand
the mountains hide
behind them

palo verde trees
fall to the strength
of monsoon wind

April 20, 2015
Prompt: my ___ , the ___

my path, the woods

wrapped around
the lake’s shore
a quiet path

reaching deep
into the pines
a quiet path

covered by maples
speckled with sun
a quiet path

c.b.w. 2015
