Poetry Challenge #44

Here’s a Neat Idea:

Sometimes all you need to write a poem is something to get you started. A number, a color, a word, or a phrase.

For this poem, begin with the phrase “Here’s a neat idea:” and write. You could be talking to yourself about something you’ve done or that you want to do. You could be talking to someone else about something you want them to do. You could be talking about something real or imagined. Whenever you get stuck, write the phrase again and see where it takes you.

Set the timer for 7 minutes.

Start writing!

Don’t think about it too much; just do it.
