Yeah! It’s National Lobster Day! (Yes, there is such a thing.*) In honor of these claw-clacking crustaceans, write a lobster poem. But not just any lobster poem.
Poetry Challenge #106
Drawing on that lobster experience (or one imagined), list seven words, one beginning with each letter of the word lobster. Use that list to craft a seven-line lobster poem. In addition, the poem might include: a sound, a smell, a location, a texture, and the word “ruckus”.
Set the timer for 7 minutes.
Don’t think about it too much; just get cracking!
* More about National Lobster Day: “In 2014, Senators Angus King and Susan Collins of Maine drafted a joint resolution designating September 25 as National Lobster Day. Recognizing the men and women in an industry with a long and rich heritage, the proclamation celebrates the lobster from sea to table.” (National Day Calendar)
