It took an entire week to get to our first “Two for Tuesday” prompt this year, so I’m going to make it the one that I run every single year:
- Write a love poem. Yeah, I said a love poem, or, if you don’t like that option…
- Write an anti-love poem. I know there are some haters out there; go ahead and hate on love and/or love poems if that’s your thing.
So if this is your first rodeo, here’s how the “Two for Tuesday” prompt works. You can choose one of the two options; choose both options; and/or blend the two together in some way. Just be sure to write a poem.
Endymionis somnum dormire
The moon fell for me
and I accepted her endless sleep
In my dream I called her Selene.
She inspired, I wrote.
She shined, I howled.
But now it seems lunacy.
I grow weary of this sleep.
But if I wake up,
how can her mortal daughters
compete with such cold allure?
