Writing Prompt Wednesday


I think poems are an open conversation between a poet and his or her reader. For today’s prompt, I want to expand on that concept.


Think of your favorite poem.

Write a response to that poem.


For example, I am a big Dorothy Parker fan. My favorite poem by her is “Resume” (http://www.poetryfoundation.org/poem/174101).


It is witty, sharp, and powerful.


But what would my own Resume look like? How would I answer her poem?


What if you looked at your favorite poem? Which one is it? How would you answer it?
