April Poem-a-Day — April 4, 2014

Friday, April 4th, 2014

For today’s prompt, take the phrase “Since (blank),” replace the blank with a word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then, write your poem.


Since I dyed my hair bright orange


I see a bird in the mirror

tropical plumage ready to take flight;

a coral-reef clown fish

gliding past anemones;

a California poppy

waving wild in the breeze.


Anything but the drabness of me.



Gammelor Goodenow
