On Tuesday, once again, we received a two-for prompt. The first 2016 April PAD Challenge: Day 19 prompt was to write a "cool" poem, while the second was it's opposite: an "uncool" poem. We weren't given any qualifiers or expansions on these, so temperature versus fads versus whatever you think would be cool or uncool. It leaves for a lot of interpretation.
I know, but I couldn't keep from doing another poem dealing with "nerd culture." I keep hoping to find one that is actually prompted...I think it would be a unique set of poems. There are so many that would either be completely against things within said culture, or that would be the culture's steadfast guardians, that I truly think it would be a phenomenal group of poems!
2016 April PAD Challenge: Day 20 we were prompted to write a poem about things unsaid. Such a huge expanse again to choose from!
Apparently, Wednesday was another holiday day. Poem in your Pocket Day gave us the idea for 2016 April PAD Challenge: Day 21 prompt which was to write a response poem. Brewer even gave us a few poems that we could respond to if we were having problems working on it. I decided to make mine in response to one of my earlier poems. This particular poem can be found in my post April 2016 Poetry A Day: Week 2/5. Why don't you guess which one?
It took quite some time to figure this poem out which is why this post is going to be late being published. Sorry, but apparently my muse refuses to be rushed!
The prompt for 2016 April PAD Challenge: Day 22 was to write a "Star _______" poem. He gave some examples but all I could think of was:
The poem kind of stole my fingers and hijacked me while I typed it, but that's why I'm here. So the stories and words that need expressing will hopefully be expressed. Thank goodness there's a title!
2016 April PAD Challenge: Day 23 prompted us to write about footwear. If not making it the star, at least mention footwear somewhere in the poem.
The title wasn't really that surprising to me, to be utterly honest. The take the poem took did since I wanted to highlight on being barefoot instead of wearing shoes or really any kind of footwear, not even socks! The poem however decided on a different flow. Hope you enjoyed it! I must admit though, I almost tried to make it a Doctor Who tribute. Figuring out all the pieces of footwear just the Doctors wear would tire me out though! Although, I guess I could have thrown the term Sand Shoes in and most fans would have gotten it.
2016 April PAD Challenge: Day 24 is the last Sunday for the poem a day challenge. I'm hoping you've been enjoying mine and following the links to enjoy some others and perhaps even try your own hand. The prompt for this particular Sunday was to write a lost and regained poem. It's tempting to include the saying of letting what you love and if it's truly love or if it love's you it'll return but it just didn't feel right for this particular piece.
Next week is the last week. The last of the poems and a quick overview of personal feelings during this particular journey.
