Poetic Asides (on Facebook): Poem-a-Day Writing Prompt & Sample Poem

Robert Lee Brewer of Poetic Asides on Facebook writes:

We've begun another poetic journey of a poem-a-day through the month of April over at the Poetic Asides blog. Read the poem-a-day guidelines here.

The basics: I provide a prompt and sample poem each morning (Georgia, USA, time). Then, poets write their poems in response to the prompt. Poets from all over the world can (and have in the past) participate. There is no fee, no registration, no pressure. This challenge is all about writing poetry and having fun.

Those who have participated in the past have ranged from poets who have published multiple collections to writers who have never written poetry before. It's also included many poets who haven't written poetry in years. And many poems written for these challenges have then gone on to be published in poetry journals and magazines.
