Well, it’s Monday again, darn it. But at least we have poetry!
Our featured participant for the day is . . . two featured participants because, once again, I just couldn’t choose. First, we have Whimsygizmo’s Blog, which brings us a love poem for that most poetic of celestial objects, the moon, and second, Snigdha Choudhuri, who brings us an exclamatory take on unrequited love.
Today’s online journal is Tinderbox Poetry Journal. So far, Tinderbox has published more than forty issues, and all of its archives are available online. In their latest issue, I’ll point you to Grace Q. Song’s “HOW THE STORY GOES,” and Ayokunle Falomo’s “ETYMOLOGICON.”
And now for our (optional) prompt. Following up on yesterday’s love poem, I have for you another deceptively simple challenge. Today, I’d like to challenge you to write a poem about a very large thing. It could be a mountain or a blue whale or a skyscraper or a planet or the various contenders for the honor of being the Biggest Ball of Twine. Whatever giant thing you choose, I hope this chance to versify in praise of the huge gets your poetic engines humming.
