There are days that I find myself avoiding the news. I turn off the TV and skip right past all the headlines blaring across my computer screen. But this week, I’m going to pursue the headlines. I’m going to scour over them and find something inspiring. Hopefully you will, too.
Your prompt is to write a poem using a headline or news story for inspiration. Your poem can be a way to tell us what happened, or to tell us how you reacted emotionally to the news. Perhaps you will respond with what you hope will be the outcome of the story. It’s up to you!
Please include the headline or a brief sentence or two about the news story you picked somewhere in your post (it doesn’t have to be in the poem itself). You don’t have to go pursuing the most horrific or sensational stories this week. Shoot, you can use Facebook’s Trending section to find an article…as long as it inspires you!
Please link your entry here, either with a pingback or in the comments. You’ve got until Friday at midnight EST to link up. We will then take all the links and ask the community to vote on their favorite on Saturday.
The winner will be featured on Sunday and be entered for a chance to be included in our Spring edition of the magazine.
