Wednesday Poetry Prompts: 605

Comments are off for this post.

For today’s prompt, write a forgetful poem. This could take the form of a poem about forgetting an important anniversary or an item (like the keys to the house that you locked on the way out the door). Or play off memory myths like that an elephant never forgets. Or write about forget-me-not flowers. Or, well, I feel like I might be forgetting a few other options as well.

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

Here’s my attempt at a Forgetful Poem:

“All I Need Is You,” by Robert Lee Brewer

There used to be a time
I thought I never forgot
anything. Whether true
or not at the time, I feel
the older I get the more
likely I am to wonder if I
remembered everything.
