Recapturing Passion

April Poem-A-Day

Day 4. For today’s prompt, write a catch-up poem.

While I am playing catch-up, I didn’t write about that. Sometimes catching up on life is more complicated. But before I share my poem, I’d like to mention that I am an honorable mention in the November PAD Chapbook Challenge. It really is an honor!!


2022 April PAD Challenge

National Poetry Month kicks off today and that means it’s time for the Writer’s Digest 2022 April PAD Challenge. (PAD is short for Poem-A-Day.) Robert Brewer posts a daily prompt and poets poem. It’s that simple. Or that difficult. Depending on the day and the prompt.

Here we go.

Day 1. “For today’s prompt, pick a word that begins with F, make it the title of your poem, and then, write your poem.”

I wrote a type of Fibonacci but the spacing isn’t accurate on this graphic.
