Poem A Day Challenge April 29, 2019

Last week I read a post about Opposite Poems by Alan J Write at Poetry Pizzazz. Referencing Paul Janeczko from 'How To Write Poetry,' Alan explained the model and provided some samples. According to Alan, "the poems are written in rhyming couplets" but can be expanded. 
I thought I would try one and then couldn't stop!

Here are a few of mine.

What’s the opposite of magic?

A boring world, dull and tragic

What’s opposite of me?

Is not you, it’s we.

United us raising a fuss,

On this beautiful round blue bus.

The opposite of spring

Are leaves that autumn brings.

The opposite of hate,

Is imagining your fate,

If you were someone other

Than your sister or your brother.

The opposite of emptiness,

Is our grandchildren’s messiness.

Without them we can survive.

But with them here, we will thrive!

The opposite of storm

Is inside where it’s warm.

Blue sky and yellow sun,

Outside play, having fun.

What's the opposite of home?

A poet who has no poem.

  1. So much fun to read these! I enjoyed each one of your responses, but love "On this beautiful round blue bus." Wonderful image for our world. One more day, Cheriee!
