NaPoWriMo #15

heaven is

round and fat and toothless
she grins at you just because



PAD #15 For today's prompt, I want you to take the title of a poem you especially like (by another poet) and change it. Then, with this new altered title, I want you to write a poem. I chose Dickinson's Hope Is

Thanks, Marie. Didn't know about the contest. I like winning. I'll go look. I doubt I win. :-)

very creative take on this prompt.

Serena, you're too nice. I just finished reading Heaven by Angela Johnson and last week I read Feathers by Jacqueline Woodson, where I came across the Hope poem. My take is pretty straightforward. Glad you like it. I'm playing mad catch-up.

This is great. I love short works because its so much harder to be brilliant in just a few words. I might post this on my wall :)
