Make it new. – Ezra Pound

7 days left! Writing every day? Spending an hour thinking in poetry every single day? Responding to prompts? You can do it for the next 7 days. I double dog-dare you!


In keeping with that thought of making it new. . . .

When you are walking or driving today, look around, focus in on some details and write several of these down. It could be someone you saw, it could be the way the light reflected off of something, it could be something about a car you saw, a store-front, a tree, a bird, maybe its something you walk by and pretty much ignore but today you notice in detail. Minimum 6 line poem, 2 detailed observations, any style or form. Get writing!!!

Day 23 PROMPT POEMS (Crayon inspired Poem)

Colored Thinking
By Christopher J. Jarmick

Visualized thought
leaves splashes of color
Happiness, and joy
In Atomic Tangerine
Banana Mania, Canary, Electric Lime
And Tickle me Pink.

Fear and doubt casts shadows
of Chestnut, Raw Umber
Sepia and Antique Brass.

Love is everywhere; around outdoor cafes
in stripes of Aquamarine, Asparagus, and Hot Magenta,
and at the park in polka-dots of Mauvelous, Pacific Blue,
Razzle Dazzle Rose, Scarlet, and flying above
traffic in squiggles of Sunglow,
Vivid Violet, and Wild Watermelon.

There’s silver swirls of passion in electric Aztec Gold,
Cosmic Cobalt, pulsating Rusty Red, glowing Twilight Lavender and
translucent Wintergreen Dream.

Quiet introverts cast shadows in Yellow Green,
Tumbleweed, Periwinkle, Peach,
Mountain Meadow and Cadet Blue.

While charismatic extroverts explode in
liquid color bombs of
Amethyst, Bedazzled Blue, Lapis Lazuli,
Jade, Tiger’s Eye and Peridot.

Some of the colors smell of strawberries,
bananas, vanilla, mint lemons and apple pie.
Some change right before your eyes
before they are carried off by the breeze
to color the horizon at sunset.

By Teresa Jarmick

Don’t label me sad,
not today.
I pruned
that rose.
Today is Lilacs
And apple blossoms
Color me periwinkle
And just try to
outline that.

The root of the word Poetry is from the Greek ποιέω (poieō), “‘I
make’”). , poiesis, meaning a “making” or ‘creation’
Poetry is Everything
