2022 April PAD Challenge: Day 9

If you want an extra challenge this month, try participating in our current WD Poetic Form Challenge for the kimo.

For today’s prompt, write a breaking poem. The poem could be about breaking down walls, break dancing, breaking up, or breaking stuff. However you’d like to break it down and then write your poem.

Remember: These prompts are springboards to creativity. Use them to expand your possibilities, not limit them.

the bread broken for us
like a body
or a promise
of something yet to come.
