Robert Brewers~April~Poem-A-Day~Poetry prompts

As luck would have it, today is a Tuesday, which means we’re facing a “Two-for-Tuesday” prompt. For folks new to the challenge, you can choose one prompt, write to both, or try to mix them together in one poem. Here are the prompts:

  1. Write a beginning poem. Today is the beginning of this challenge. It’s also the beginning of April. But there are so many other beginnings: Beginning of a relationship, beginning of school, beginning of the rest of your life, and so on. Pick a beginning to write about.
  2. Write an ending poem. Often, though not always, beginnings come as the result of an ending. Sometimes endings are cause for disappointment, heartbreak, or numbness. Other times, endings are celebrated. Capture an ending today.
Beginning Poem
by John Yeo
What will the future hold for you?
So small, so petite so, vulnerable,
We waited for your arrival with bated breath
With highs and lows and loving care
We counted the minutes in silent prayer.
A tiny heart beats in your tiny body
Our blood flows through your veins
You will grow up in a world ever changing
The future is yours as you grow stronger
We will always be with you as long as we can
 Our life with you is our new beginning.
