March 11 Prompt
Since March is the month that gave us Dr. Seuss, our March prompt is to write a Seussian-type poem that somehow incorporates the question (or answer) How does the aspirin know where to go?

February 11 Prompt
We had many wonderful poems, last night, about What’s on the Table. February’s inspiration challenges you in a different way.

The five (in the order they were drawn) are:
leisure, watery, remain, demure, sinister
January 14, 2014 Prompt

December 10th Prompt: The Empty Chair

This month’s prompt is Local History, because some of us will be performing at the sealing of the Okaloosa County timecapsule on December 14 at the Heritage Museum of Northwest Florida. Our group is called “The Panhandle Poetry Project.”
Okaloosa County Emergency Resources for Karen
