Day 30 ~ When It’s Over
Look at you, reading this on the final day of National Poetry Month. Whether you wrote a poetic sentence or all 30 poems, high five. And now you must deal with entering into a month that does not care if you write a poem. Does not care to inspire you. Does not celebrate the ideas that are stacked on your table and turning in your mind. But please don’t let that stop you. So today you should celebrate the end because all ending lead to beginnings. . .and hence your prompt. Pick your favorite poem you wrote this month. Write down the last line of that poem on a blank sheet of paper (don’t use the computer-I know you are looking at it right now and that seems some what hypocritical, but trust me). That line is now the first line of the new poem you write today. Endings are only final if you let them be.
Didn’t write and you need a last line to start with? Try one of these
