Poem a Day Challenge

Reader’s Digest is having a poem a day challenge for National Poetry Month. I thought I’d give it a shot.  Each day of April they will give a prompt and the challenge is to write your poem based on that prompt.

This was today’s:

“For today’s prompt, write a reminiscing poem. In my mind, this means a poem that remembers something (a moment, a relationship, etc.). The poem could be kind of nostalgic or sharing lessons learned. But for those new to these challenges, you should know that I consider these prompts open to interpretation–so if you have another take, go for it.”

So here’s mine. . .

Soft Blue Cotton

Soft blue cotton

Peach fuzz cheeks

Tiny hands

Tiny feet

Eyes that saw

Into my soul

Thought My heart was broken

But didn’t know

What that truly meant

Till I had to let him go

What do you say? Try the challenge! Share your poem in the comments or on the Readers Digest site, or keep it to yourself.
