Wednesday Poetry Prompts: 374

Wow! After a month of writing a poem each and every day, it felt so weird going a whole week between prompts.

For today’s prompt, write a pop poem. This poem could be about popcorn, pop-up books, pop-out decorations, pop quizzes, pop culture, Pop-Tarts, or any number of pop-related topics. Just wait long enough, and I’m sure something will pop into your head.

Revision doesn’t have to be a chore–something that should be done after the excitement of composing the first draft. Rather, it’s an extension of the creation process!

In the 48-minute tutorial video Re-creating Poetry: How to Revise Poems, poets will be inspired with several ways to re-create their poems with the help of seven revision filters that they can turn to again and again.

Here’s my attempt at a Pop poem:

“Ode to a Soda Pop”

O fizzy carbonation!
O sugary sensation!

My life was watered down
before you came to town

with your sweetened caffeine;
I admit that I’m a fiend

for your Coke & Mountain Dew–
yes, root beer & orange pop too!

There is a time to drink you right:
Any hour, both day & night.
