Different planets cross paths,
orbit each other and regularly align
with meteor tales and showers of imagery.
There are no aliens on planet prose,
merely light waves and white noise
every now and then
in poetic symphony.

My response to Poets United Midweek Motif: Writing Prose
Susan reminds us that Poets United has a new prompt on the first Sunday of every month, “Telling Tales with Magaly Guerrero: a Pantry of Prose.” Our challenge is to write a poem about the tales we can tell in prose and how it is to write them. We should do one or more of the following in a new poem:
- describe prose vs. poetry
- use the prose element of dialogue fitting the character who speaks it (within your poem)
- praise prose to the utmost
- show us a prose writer at work
Susan has also inspired us with quotations and poems on the topic.
