April Poem-a-Day — April 22, 2014

Tuesday, April 22nd, 2014

Today is a Tuesday, and you know what that means: Two for Tuesday Prompts! Write one, write the other, and/or write both!

  • Write an optimistic poem. The glass is half full.
  • Write a pessimistic poem. The glass is half empty.




He worries that the roof will leak

with every rain, and it will rain

every night from dusk to dawn.

I say we can patch the roof

and turn it into flower garden.


For every day the sun will shine

on soil well-watered overnight;

tall, orange canna will glow like flame

above a billow of spiderwort,

chartreuse leaves and cobalt blooms.
