Written for: Poetic Asides 2019 PAD November Chapbook Challenge – Day 23
“For today’s prompt, write an instructional poem. Your poem could be a set of instructions, or be from the perspective of the teacher or the student. Ironically, there are no instructions for writing an instructional poem (until somebody writes one!).”
Want to feel better?
-Take a walk, be attentive. Do not
walk as if in training for a marathon.
-Read an absorbing book, and enter it.
-Sketch–does not matter if you can or cannot.
Flow of pen or pencil will relax you.
-Write. Yes you can! Creativity
is an antidote to boredom.
-No energy? Work out at the gym. You will
leave feeling renewed.
-If you pass a flower with an intoxicating
scent, stop and breathe in that sweetness.
