Poetry Challenge #27

Here Comes the Sun!

Move to a brighter spot, somewhere you are either in the sun, or where you can witness the effects of sunshine. Don your sunglasses and shade hat to get you in a springy mood. There, now your ready!

First: Brainstorm a list of words that rhyme with either the word “Spring” or “Sun”–your choice.

Now: Using the words from your list, write a springy-sunny poem entitled “Here Comes the Sun!”

Here Comes the Sun Playlist:
• Here Comes the Sun by The Beatles
• Feeling Groovy by Simon & Garfunkle
• Sunshine on My Shoulder by John Denver
• And one for Max: Springtime in Alaska by Johnny Horton
• One that is anything but springy, but I couldn’t resist: Three Days sung by KD Lang:

Set the timer for 7 minutes.

Start writing!

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