A lot of poetry comes from the environment around poets. One such environment is the great and grey cities. Many people write of the country with lush green fields and open air but today we want you to write about the city. A city with sky scrapers standing majestic or ominous, the lights and shadows it casts at night, the lonely walk amongst the throngs of people, the love you experienced and link memories to. The city tells a great many stories and through your poetry we hope to read and experience some of those stories no matter true or imagined.
We look forward to be a t9ourist and visiting your city today.
If you have a prompt idea (even a Music or Film inspired one) that you would like to suggest or share with us please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org . We keep a folder set aside with all your suggestions and just might use it one day.
There 3 simple rules:
1. Don’t link to more than 3 poems per week.
2. Please visit some of the other poems linked here when you link to yours.
3. Leave a comment after you have posted your link.
