Poem in response to this fantastic prompt

{Postcards from the (L)Edge.}

Greetings, my poetic friends! De here (aka WhimsyGizmo).

Are you tired yet? Going crazy? Isn’t April the wildest poetry month? Many of us are rocking at least one poem a day, all month long. So for today’s poetics, I’m going to keep it short, simple, and hopefully inspiring.


Today, write us a postcard poem.

This can be as simple as penning a poem that is short enough to fit on a postcard (or cocktail napkin, or Post-it note). Think micropoetry. Or you have the option to add the challenge of writing a poem that is to, or from, someone, as if it were a note on an actual postcard. You can also choose a postcard image (one you own, or one you find online – just be sure to give credit where due), and use it as a visual prompt.

Your poem can be serious, funny, fun, tongue-in-cheek, gleeful or melancholy. Just be sure it’ll fit on a postcard (think 12 lines or less). Take us somewhere fabulous. Make every word count.

  1. A brilliant take on the prompt; love it. We are all, actually, too reliant on our techno-toys–but what the hell, I haven’t seen a phone booth in America for 8 years.

  2. felt on the train with you like i do going into the underground stretch of the tracks, trying to read and reply comments! funny and warming words!
