OCTPOWRIMO: Every day for one month I’ll collect inspiration from here and write/post a poem here. You can too!
THE PROMPT: Where does poetry hide? Some possible answers could be “in the dark dusty corner under my bed”, “in the extension of a dancer’s leg”, or perhaps “in the layered harmony of a Pentatonix song”. Look around you. Make a list of some of the unusual places that you find poetry. Use this list as the starting place for a poem. Maybe the list is a poem in itself. Or maybe you’ll find an entire poem tucked in between your sofa cushions. Most importantly, HAVE FUN!
~ Amy McGrath
Within generous acts of nature
in the simplicity of a smile
in hard graft and yielding sweat
feeling tears shed, worthwhile.
Within good friendships and families
in finding you, knowing me
in the joining of hearts, won
is where I find poetry.
