Poetry Prompts: Day One

To celebrate the first National Dark Poetry Day yesterday, I started reading and writing in 31 Days of Poetry Prompts: Humanity by Jim Russo. There is a whole series of these great books available on Amazon. Each day provides a new prompt to invoke thought.

As I work through the book, I’ll try to post a favorite poem I’ve written as a result about once a week. Already Russo’s book is pushing me to explore unfamiliar territory in myself… and what is the purpose of art if not to push boundaries? Our own boundaries are the most important to test.

This excellent poetry prompt book series is available on Amazon here!
