Today’s is April Fool’s Day and for this day’s poetry prompt how about a poem about April fools, any fools, foolishness, the joke’s on you or anything else which strikes your fancy. As a fun bonus, try a poem inspired by the above photo.

If you would like another prompt you could also check out:

Robert Lee Brewer’s Poetic Asides presents the first of the National Poetry Month prompts: “For today’s prompt, write a new world poem. There are new worlds and there are new worlds. You could write a poem about discovery of an actual planet. Or maybe your new world is actually a state of mind—or a series of books! In a way, I consider each new challenge a bit of a new world. Let’s explore this one together.

Remember: These prompts are just springboards; you have the freedom to jump in any direction you want. In other words, it’s more important to write a new poem than to stick to the prompt.

Good Luck and Happy Writing!

Morning Coffee – Retro April 2019

As sure as the alarm
could go off
It need not
as bones are aching
for a walk
Padding to the pot
filling the vessel
Pondering the day
pouring the water
sopping the slosh
Starting the pot
waiting and listening
What’s up with the brew
It Takes Coffee Grounds
to make coffee
If morning starts this way
it’s going to be a long day

The beginning prompt for the 2019 National Poetry Month was on Robert Lee Brewer’s blog HERE The above poem was my attempt to write to the prompt. Perhaps you would like to do the same.

For a visual prompt us the image on this poem and give it a try!

Not Just Another Fish in the Sea

Clownfish are like this oh yes
does that change the tale?
or simply change the posits
interesting facts to learn

poor male Anglerfish
one chomp and your duty’s done
nature’s own fusion
how much did they wish it true?
being barnacles would rule

Monoecious fish
they have versatility
the soup of the day
one moment his, another hers
puts a new spin on humans
