National Poetry Month — Day 4

Poetry is in the air, because April.

But as much as people like poetry — and they do — and as much as many people want to write it — and they do — sometimes it’s difficult to find the inspiration. Yesterday I shared a writing prompt. Today I’m going to share lots of them.

Poetry Super Highway, run by the Los Angeles-based poet Rick Lupert (whose work is intelligent and witty and worth checking out), has held a writing prompt-palooza of sorts for National Poetry Month the last few years. Here’s the link to this month’s collection so far; keep checking back every day to see a new prompt each day in April, submitted by their readers. Drop by there and see if something inspires you to jot down a poem, and if it does then feel free to post it here in the comments.
