There have been some killer poems the last few weeks and we only have one week left for National Poetry Month. If you haven’t participated yet, please feel free to join the challenge for Days 25-30. You get a chance to have your poem featured in our weekend article and highlighted during the week.
Major props to those of you have written a poem every day! It is great to see writers being motivated by each prompt, and we hope you join our CTU Facebook page to participate in all the activities and read our posts from each day. We post quotes, featured writers, promote our published authors, and engage the writing community in many other ways.
When you get a chance, type in the hashtag #CTUwritingprompt on Google and the popular social media sites (FB, Twitter, Instagram) and just browse through the awesome poets who have been participating in our challenge. Give them some likes and comments to let them know they are doing a great job.
Check out our favorites from week 4 and please take a moment to look at each writer’s page:
Humans love their pets! @bellalupa6 shows the bond between those best friends of ours in this playfully sweet poem.
Blackout poetry was new to many poets who participated in this challenge and everyone did a great job. Karen Payze leaves us with the most intense words in her version.
Fighting the darkness is not an easy task. Many overcome morbid monstrosities and become the warriors they were bred to be. In this macabre write by @misprinted.lies, we learn that sometimes our souls are too weary for the battle.
How some of us wish we could go back in time and live again with the knowledge we have gained. Daryl P. Hall gives his past self some wise advice in his poem – never let someone else taint your dreams.
Diaries are filled with our personal journeys, teaching us many things as we grow. @SitariPoetry inscribes a simple message to live a content life
Ken Allan Dronsfield channels the nature loving poet, William Wordsworth, in a vivid display of nature’s creations.
Love can yield a plethora of emotions. Nazizh A. keeps love simple by appreciating the smallest gesture in her poem.
Thank you again for participating in our challenge. As a reminder, please use the hashtag #ctuwritingprompt so that we are able to find your poems on social media or post them under CTU’s daily “Inspiration Call” posts on Facebook.
