Written for: Poetic Asides 2019 April PAD – Day 12
“For today’s prompt, take the phrase “The Art of (blank),” replace the blank with a word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then, write your poem.”
What pastime appeals to you,
something you have yearned to do?
Writing, painting, a sport or two,
perhaps fishing for marlin and blue,
or, making some homemade wine or brew.
Learn new instrument, or a few.
Mastering a new language would be a coup.
You need not live in a Xanadu
to watch brilliant birds from under a Yew.
