My Easter Day poem for the PoMoSco’s was inspired by a group of teenagers and the Polaroids they were passing around the table.
The description for today’s poetry prompt reads
To earn the “All Ears” badge, take a public journey of your choosing. For instance, you might sit on your local bus or train for an hour, walk around the mall, visit a museum or even just walk down the street in an area with a lot of foot traffic. Keep an open ear to the conversations around you and jot down the phrases and words you overhear.
Craft a poem composed of those fragments and take a picture during your journey to post alongside your poem.
For examples of overheard poetry, visit Laura J. Davies’ “Overheard Poetry” page at http://cargocollective.com/laurajdavies/Overheard-Poetry.
Cite the starting point and end point of your journey at the bottom of your post.
The story that developed in this poem is a little surreal, which is the experience I hoped to get from this project. Twenty Five more day!
