Happy Poetry Friday! Welcome, everyone! (Wondering what Poetry Friday is? Click here.)
So, this month, our Poetry Princess challenge was from me: Roll a set of metaphor dice and write a poem inspired by your metaphor. If you don’t have metaphor dice, try an online metaphor generator, like this one: https://perchance.org/ve4axzbkx4
I feel kind of bad that I didn’t enjoy this process all that much. Maybe it’s because of all the tech problems I was having while trying to write this poem. And it came out very general and abstract. I did one revision, in my Write Alone Together session on Monday, and I like it a little better. But still. Not crazy about the whole thing–I hate it when I don’t respond well to my own dang writing prompt! I hope you had more fun with it than I did! If so, share it on your blog or in the comments here–or on social media with #PoetryPals.
Okay, here’s what I wrote in response to “Talent is a birdcage.”
And don’t forget to see what my Poetry Sisters have come up with! I was so glad that we were able to write together, all 7 of us, last Sunday. It’s amazing.

Want to try next month’s challenge and post with us? We’d love for you to join us! Here’s the prompt: dizzying dizains. (Here’s a bit about dizains.) Apparently, we wrote dizains back in March 2019. That’s the only (I think) month I’ve missed posting with my poetry sisters, so dizains will be brand new to me, too! Share your poem on March 26 in a post and/or on social media – #PoetryPals. Hope you’ll join us!
Also, make sure to stop by Karen Edmisten’s blog for the Poetry Friday Roundup! I’m so grateful for this patient and encouraging community.
