April 23, 2020: Poetry Writing Prompt – Elizabeth Iannaci

This poetry writing prompt submitted by Elizabeth Iannaci:
In Plain Sight Prompt
Take a stroll around your house or apartment. Make a short list of objects that you rarely notice but serve a vital purpose: the refrigerator, coffee maker, printer, bookcase, toilet, trash can, etc. Choose one that seems the most important at this moment.
Write a short poem (no more than 14 lines) extolling its virtues. Try describing  what your day would be like if it “went on holiday” or left you for someone else.
The piece can take any form, sonnet, Ode, metered or rhymed, whatever suits. Chances are, you’ll view this object with new eyes…
If you write a poem from this prompt, post it as a comment underneath the prompt in the Poetry Super Highway Facebook Group.
