Write A Poem
Choose a poem, any format (except for epics, let's be reasonable here people.)! From haiku, to limerick, to sonnet, I am willing to write a beautiful piece of your choosing with whatever content you desire. Touching poem for a get well card? Done! Cynical poem about the state of the world? It's yours! For an example of my works, check out one of my latest poems below:
DEATH OF A SEASON
Summer died today.
Snuffed out by a single icy breath.
The trees haven't noticed yet.
But everyone outside is wearing sweaters, and for the first time in months, turning on the heaters in their homes
Gone is the season of sun dresses and shorts, of burned noses and tanned shoulders,
And though there may yet be a few odd days that cling to the time we already know has passed,
And try to make us forget that it's over,
Gone is the heat that hung thick in the air, the scent of sunscreen and bugspray and sweat leaving with it.
And already I long for the beaches, for the picnics in the park,
Already I dread the frozen wasteland, watching the world disappear under a thick layer of white, unable to find warmth for six long months,
And despite the pristine beauty of the autumn leaves when they finally realize the time has come,
Still I find it hard to say say farewell to those blue skies,
And I can't help but grieve because...
Summer died today.
