Isadora hosts us today at the imaginary garden of poets.
I am ever so happy to present the mid-week prompt for our Poems in April promptkrieg. For this prompt we are going out of standard. I am going to challenge you to find new places in the everyday and sully the page with the unexpected. At this point in the month, your poem muscles are warm, limber and ready for the long haul.
Signs of the times
The prompt is simple: find an image of a protest sign and use that phrase in a poem that is not political.
In case you don’t want to find your own image I have supplied some below from different eras and different causes. Feel free to use them as poem fodder. However, do also feel free to find your own picture which means something to you….or even use a picture of yourself holding a protest sign.
So go now my muddy buddies and bring us back something shiny and new!

Notes: The picture featured in this prompt is inspired by the television show Father Ted
I enjoyed this prompt so much I wrote a second poem
