Poetry Challenge #66-Blank in a Box

It’s that time of year! Porches all across America are heaped with boxes. Such tempting boxes. (Too tempting for some; more than one friend has had packages pilfered.) Ever wonder what’s inside those boxes? Let’s find out!

Powetry Challenge #66

Blank in a Box

Imagine a mysterious box on your doorstep. What’s inside?

For today’s prompt, begin by filling in the blank: I found a ___________ box . . .

With that as the first line, compose a five-line poem of one syllable words about what’s inside that box.

Challenge yourself by creating a box-shaped concrete poem. For example, 5 lines of 5 three-letter words would look box-like, or vary the length of the words so each line is the same length.

Set the timer for 7 minutes.

Start writing!

Don’t think about it too much; just do it.
