Wednesday Poetry Prompts: 336
By: Robert Lee Brewer | January 13, 2016

Last week, I mentioned three of my poems that were published in issue two of By&By Poetry on January 1 (click to read the poems). This week, I had a poem published on page eight of the debut issue of Englyn, a journal of 4-line poems. There are a few familiar names there. So be sure to check it out.

For today’s prompt, write a unique poem. But aren’t all poems unique? Like snowflakes, maybe they are. Use this prompt as you will, but I was thinking more along the lines of unique situations, unique people, or unique (fill-in-the-blank). So while your poem may be unique, maybe it could cover something or someone unique. Feel free to put your unique spin on it.

With the help of Mr. Brewer’s Poetry Prompt I submit the following attempt at poetry…not really my forte… But, here goes:

Forcing poetry to flow from my brain
Is like asking to swim in a stream of mundane.
You have to have artistry, skill and talent
To give your thoughts beauty, worth and balance.
I have none of these three—when I try to poet
I’m not being humble; I just happen to know it.
So, with that, I will cease playing this game…
The only thing unique about me…is the sound of my name.

"I'd like to think of myself as a blended mix of Southern charm and humor. What I really am is a hot mess of sin and sass. Jesus loves me either way."
