The Prompt

With today’s prompt, we want you to focus on the rhythm of your words. We want you to feel each line as it leaves your fingertips. It’s important that the rhythm and flow of your poetry matches the power of the message it spreads.

Scenery/Vibe: The middle of the Pacific Ocean. It’s dark. You’re alone. And you just want to reach shore; to see light; to feel something.

Poem’s Message: That when darkness swarms, people will go to great lengths to reach safety and warmth.
