Congratulations to Doug MacIlroy, AKA “Ironwoodwind“! He was the drawing winner this week for the “So Cliche” poetry prompt from Reason 2 Rhyme. Not only is Doug an active member of the writing community and all-around great guy, his words (both prose and poetry) have a habit of lifting up his readers and making them see the beauty around us. His poem below answered the challenge to “choose a clichéd phrase and turn it around.”
Gandhi, Kennedy, King
In search of a higher, better way
Had their minds stilled
By men who had none
And knew little
Thanks to all the participants this week, and here’s a sneak peek at Monday’s 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.
The prompt page will be live on Monday, July 2, with a place to post your poem in the comment section, or link directly to your page. Can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with next!
