Every Wednesday, Robert Lee Brewer shares a prompt and an example poem to get things started on the Poetic Asides blog. This week, write an occasion poem.

Wow! Today marks 600 Wednesday Poetry Prompts! Good stuff.

For today’s prompt, write an occasion poem. The occasion might be doing something for the first time, the 50th time, or 600th time. Or it might be a big event like watching the Super Bowl or giving heart-shaped cards to each other (with some kind of flowers and/or candy and/or use your imagination). Or the occasion could be something much more low key, though maybe just as important, like writing a poem.

Remember: These prompts are springboards to creativity. Use them to expand your possibilities, not limit them.

Here’s my attempt at an Occasion Poem:

“valentines,” by Robert Lee Brewer

the cards have been exchanged
& the poems written & read
so that all that still remains
are a few chocolates on the bed
