Old Ideas, New Times

Written for:  Poetic Asides November 2015 Challenge – Day 18
Write an idea poem.

For today’s prompt, write an idea poem. Do all poems begin with an idea? I don’t know. Some of mine begin with an image or a sound, and the meaning emerges later (if at all). For this prompt though, have an idea, an epiphany, a giant light bulb hovering over your head.

Let the ideas flow.

John Lennon knew a crucial fact,
give peace a chance, we must co-act.
Joined voices have greater impact.
Imagine that, Imagine that.

Have all his hopes of love and peace
gone up in smoke, has hate increased?
Let people hold their own beliefs
or life will cease, or life will cease.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
