Monday, July 2, 2012 Poetry Prompt…
Select one particular day in history (the world’s or your personal experience) and write a poem contrasting the same day in the present.
Here is my response to the “This Day In History..” prompt…
The Longest Day of the Year,
The Ancients would celebrate
Sun blazing past our bedtime,
Kids race through the sprinkler
The Great Clock begins its descent
And the world will hibernate
A year from now, where will we be,
with the sun at its zenith, shining down on me?
