The Future

Before today’s poem, I’m proud to announce that a piece I wrote at the end of March has been posted to the Brave and Reckless blog in the Sharing Our Truths section of work inspired by the COVID-19 pandemic. Check it out!


For today’s prompt, write a future poem.

– and –

As so many of us are staying home these days, let’s try a busy poem.

The Future

The Future will be busy
with hardy creatures
running,
swimming,
slithering,
hopping,
flying into
new found niches

after we’re gone.
