Poetry is…

From Robert Lee Brewer’s Write Better Poetry blog: For today’s prompt, write a metaphor poem. A simile is when something is like a something else (example: I am like a tree); a metaphor is when something is something else (example: I am a tree). So take a moment to consider possible metaphors and then poem them out.

Poetry is…

that grain of sand irritating
the foot of your soul

a paper cut across your fingerprint
leaving blood on the keys

the scab forming over a trauma
and poets can’t stop picking

    Interesting. I’m undecided which I like the most. Each could be a prompt.
