This is it! Robert Lee Brewer’s final prompt of the Writer’s Digest’s Poetic Asides “count down” to the annual April Poem-a-Day challenge! It has been nice being able to share Robert’s prompts here with you and get to interact a bit.  Thank you, all who were able to participate!

Here is the link to the final Countdown prompt, “Write a cycle poem”Poetic Asides April PAD Countdown:  T-minus 1



We will continue providing Robert’s April Poem-a-Day Challenge prompts right here at Poetic Bloomings each day.  We will suspend our own Sunday prompts during April, in favor of simply poeming alongside the WD Poetic Asides group.

If you share your poems here (and we’d LOVE that!), we also want to urge you to post at PA, as well.  The idea is not to take away from Robert’s site, but to have a place where our Bloomers can easily share our poems daily and interact and encourage one another throughout the month.  No need to wait for moderation, here.  We are a small and intimate group. We know you!

Connect, keep healthy, and poem on!

    There once was a cute little tyke,
    Who, for Christmas, received her first trike.
    Then her new little wheels
    Sent her head over heels.
    It’s been decades. She’s STILL on bike strike.

  2. Cycling

    And the world goes round
    and day turns into night
    the seasons come and go
    and all things seem to cycle
    Begin. End. Begin. End. Begin
    Generation after generation
    and there is some comfort
    in knowing things go on.
    Yet, I wonder if our sun gets
    bored with this constant
    going around or grumpy
    like we are annoying gnats.
    And I get up with the sun
    and go to sleep with the moon
    again and again and again
    until I don’t
    and then, the world goes round
    and day turns into night
    the seasons come and go…
