Picked-Up Poetry (2022 NaPoWriMo #04)

With a little digging I found another series of poetry prompts being provided by NaPoWriMo – 30 Poems in 30 Days. I started in the middle so these will be coming out of order as I work to catch-up.

Prompt 04

Write a poem that is a poetry prompt


“Picked-Up Poetry” Prompt

Write a poem with your feet on the ground and your head in the air. Then turn it upside down, pull it apart from the inside out, and scatter it all about. Pick-up all the pieces in any old fashion and stack them bottom up. Now read them in order from top to bottom and you’ve got a new “picked-up poem” to share with anyone that cares. I’ll go first!

    About like 52 card pickup…perhaps something lost in the translation?

    Hehe, an interesting prompt but not the best for the flow or rhythm of the poem!

      Nope. It’s quite terrible. But experiment had been completed and something has been learned.
