Happy Tuesday, everybody, and welcome back for Day 2 of Na/GloPoWriMo. Hopefully, Day 1 whetted your appetite for verse, and now you’re ready for seconds.

Our featured participant for the day is A Rhyme a Day, where the response to Day 1’s prompt cleverly blends the memory of reading a book with the memory of what was going on in the poet’s life while reading it.

Today’s poetry resource is Secret Chords, an Instagram account where you will find a new poem every day.

Finally, here’s today’s optional prompt. Today, we’d like to challenge you to write a platonic love poem. In other words, a poem not about a romantic partner, but some other kind of love – your love for your sister, or a friend, or even your love for a really good Chicago deep dish pizza. The poem should be written directly to the object of your affections (like a letter is written to “you”), and should describe at least three memories of you engaging with that person/thing.

Happy writing!
