So exciting how much poetry can be in two pages of a book. Yesterday’s prompt was challenging but brilliant as well. So what has @FrauPaulchen in store for us today? Let her tell us:
(this is my translation of @FrauPaulchen’s post yesterday in German)
oh, how beautiful the prompt for the sixth #frapalymo poem was. it gave me so much joy and lead me different ways and gave me different words. i will certainly use this prompt more often! and how great to read your different texts which were different for you too! a pleasure!
for tomorrow we travel rather classical paths and have a look at the season. because I believe we never had a spring poem as task. but: of course, we won’t have it that easy. a small challenge will be there. let’s write a spring poem that is full of spring but without the word spring.
the prompt for the poem on 7. May is: “write a spring poem without the word spring in it”. i am sure your poems will breathe spring through every letter even without spring!
and the small print: please let me know via email or Twitter, if you take part. then i can post the link to your blog/poem on Twitter. or post the link in the comments under the daily prompt post on my blog. hashtag for Twitter is #frapalymo and I am @FrauPaulchen.
