For today’s prompt, write a jealous poem. Maybe you’re jealous. Or maybe someone else is jealous of you–or someone else. Whether envious of another or suspicious of a partner, dive deep into this emotion today.


Is the Sun jealous of the Moon
when she takes the Sky?

Are the Orchids jealous of the Roses
when the Bees are in flight?

Was the Sea of Galilee jealous
of the River Jordan?

Then why am I afraid
of losing you?
