Poem-A-Day Challenge: Day Two

Oh, intrepid Figmenters! What joyous news! The Poem-A-Day Challenge continues amidst great outpourings of lyricism. We’re excited to bring you the second poetry prompt, so put down the pens on those first entries and start your brainstorming anew.

Remember, there are no restrictions on the poems you write in terms of length, meter, or rhyme. The only requirement is that you post your poem within 24 hours of each prompt’s announcement and that you tag it appropriately. Today’s tag will be: TuesdayPADC

And now for today’s prompt, dreamed up by the ever-inspired Emily Moore:

Write a poem about something that happened in someone else’s bedroom.

Intrigue, suspense, even, dare I say, romance! Forward, march!

UPDATE: Due to overwhelming requests, those who were not aware of the contest may begin participating in it. All you have to do is make sure you tag your work according to the tag for each prompt, and make sure you address the prompt in your work.

  1. Hi Zaphadora

    Yes, you can put the poems in one book, but it must include all the tags, and the chapters must include the day on which the prompt was given. For example, you can either name your chapters Monday, Tuesday, etc., or you can explain which day that poem is for at the top.

    Hope this helps!

    Please feel free to email me at Maria@Figment.com if you have any other questions.

    Best of luck!

  2. Can I have the poem be fiction? Can it be about something that never happened. Like a boy spying on his sisters sleepover that never happened?

    • Hi Desie

      Yes, you can start today 🙂 Just make sure it’s tagged according to what’s outlined in the specific post for each day. If go to the “Contests” page, you will see the posts for Monday and Tuesday, which include both the prompt and tag for that specific day.

      Best of luck!

  3. Entered a new poem that I wrote in like ten minutes into the contest… (Then again, I did use all my time and a computer/internet, so it was easy…)

    • Hi Andromeda

      Yes, you can start a day late 🙂 Just make sure your works are all tagged properly – there is a different tag for each prompt/day. Just check the “Contests” page for the posts about the challenge. Those posts will include the tag and prompt for the day.

      Best of luck!
