Wednesday Poetry Prompts: 606
This is the final Wednesday Poetry Prompt until May. The reason for that is simple: Starting on Friday (April 1), we’ll be writing a poem every single day of April in the 15th Annual April Poem-A-Day Challenge. Can’t wait to get started!
For today’s prompt, write an astrology poem. Make the title of your poem your astrological sign. Write an astrological prediction. Map the stars. Or even get into related (but completely not related) fields, like astronomy or tarot. Have fun with it, because it’s written in the stars that much poeming is on the way.
Remember: These prompts are springboards to creativity. Use them to expand your possibilities, not limit them.

Write a poem every single day of the year with Robert Lee Brewer’s Poem-a-Day: 365 Poetry Writing Prompts for a Year of Poeming. After sharing more than a thousand prompts and prompting thousands of poems for more than a decade, Brewer picked 365 of his favorite poetry prompts here.
Here’s my attempt at an Astrology Poem:
“i am a cancer,” by Robert Lee Brewer
i am a cancer & today i will
feel good or bad depending
on my openness to fortunes
spinning inside my realm of
influence that will bring great
financial or emotional wealth
but there’s also a chance that
i could lose it all unless nothing
happens which is also within
the mansion of possibilities
but love is a definite thing
that exists & could be mine
or fall to someone else
without me knowing so it’s
best to stay the course &
take what comes until what
comes is something great
