Thunderstorm (National Poetry Month: Day 2)

Gray tour buses pause,
   swing wide their doors.
Their passengers crowd out,
   pour down the steps,
   press past each other,
   murmur in the dark.
Flashbulbs pop,
   illuminate the night,
and everybody cheers.


Two more links for your #poemaday benefit:

  • Robert Brewer at Poetic Asides is posting daily poetry prompts along with his poem. Submit your 5 best at the end of the month to his contest.
  • Big Tent Poetry posts poetry prompts every Monday and provides a place to share your works.


  1. I really enjoy Robert Brewer's poetry prompts. Thanks for highlighting his blog posts.

  2. He's a new find for me, but I'm looking forward to following him in the future.
    Thanks for your work in the Poetry Month Tour!
