I subscribe to Nasa Science news and my own prompts often come directly from the news story of the day. The prompt is simple: write a poem on that topic. It can take me to very interesting places, poetically speaking. For example, and I invite you to use this one for today’s prompt, current news story is: “Europe’s Planck spacecraft has obtained the most accurate and detailed map ever made of the oldest light in the universe. The map results suggest the universe is expanding more slowly than scientists thought, and is 13.8 billion years old, 100 million years older than previous estimates.”  Write a poem about that. (I dare you!).
