National Poetry Month Day Fifteen

Prompt:  Write a poem about someone or something you are longing for.  Maybe it’s a new life, a new relationship or a new president.  Maybe it’s a submarine sandwich, or a person you have a secret crush on.  Consider playing with the word “desire”—maybe repeat this word in every other line, or maybe use words that rhyme with “desire” throughout your poem.


Desire

Clean air
Clean water
Cures for disease
Enough good food
Opportunity to thrive
Possibility to succeed
Better unrestricted education
Teachers paid what they’re worth

See…
Under all our garb
We want the same things.

“Friendship is born at that moment
When one man says to another: 
‘What! You too? 
I thought that no one but myself . . .’”
C.S. Lewis

“Because in spite of everything 
I still believe that people 
Are really good at heart.” 
Anne Frank
