2020 April PAD Challenge: Day 14

For: https://www.writersdigest.com/editor-blogs/poetic-asides/2020-april-pad-challenge-day-14

For today’s prompt:

  1. Write a form poem (here are 100 poetic forms to choose from) and/or…
  2. Write an anti-form poem. I get it; some people don’t like forms.

If you feel like a form doesn’t quite give you direction for today’s prompt, write a poem about something with structure or form, or write a poem about chaos.

Remember: These prompts are just springboards; you have the freedom to jump in any direction you want. In other words, it’s more important to write a new poem than to stick to the prompt.

My Contribution:

COVID

Containment

COVID-19

Don’t run and hide.
There isn’t anywhere to go.
We must wait it out.
The pandemic will end.
Pray for those who are sick.

    I like the poem, especially ‘There isn’t anywhere to go.’
    A situation that only two months ago we would have thought impossible.
    Here in France we are already into our second month of lockdown, with at least another 6 weeks ahead of us.
    Stay safe.
    And thanks for following Sound Bite Fiction.
