This post is part of a series of weekly found poetry prompts. If you have an idea for a found poetry source, email Senior Poetry Editor Beth Ayer.
For the first time this year since Jimmy the Groundhog pulled a Mike Tyson, it feels like spring is on its way. Yes, change is in the air. And it is inevitable. And it’s gonna come. And it’s the only constant. Etc.
Prompt: In honor of change in all its forms, this week’s prompt asks you to consult sources related to change. Consider the word “change” in any way you wish. Write a poem by remixing, erasing, or otherwise repurposing your chosen source text(s).
Here are a few starting links:
- Change quotes
- The Metamorphosis
- Sea change
- “Can Soup Change the World?“
- “Change” dictionary entry
Oh, and I made you a Spotify playlist.
