I signed up for 12 poems in 12 months challenge via deadlinesforwriters.com.
I chose December 1st, expecting the month to begin then, but it doesn't.
I discovered I have a week to write my first poem that has to be posted on 8th.
The prompt is 'Adapt' and we are not given a form. I chose Acrostic.
I wrote a quick one on Sunday, but plan to do something more polished before it is posted.
Archeopteryx so vast is your wing
Diplodocus, such thrills your bones to children bring
Archeologists search for your skeletal remains
Perhaps you could have changed your ancient terrains
To escape dusty incarceration in academics brains
Well, despite what I said at the start, this looks a lot like the original draft.
It won't win any prizes will it, but here's hoping for a vast improvement during 2022.
