Eleven — Count Them 11 Days Done

I said I would and I did make it to 11 aka eleven days of National Poetry Month by posting a poem each day. I did it! I also created a 11.5 poem today, inspired by my waking dream of a fly.

Why am I sharing this? I am sharing because I want to say that if I can do it, then so can you. Need some inspiration? Would you like another 10 prompts?

Okay, here you go. 10 more prompts!

Thanks to Upslash! This helps a lot!

Prompt #11

Look at this beautiful sunset. What do you see? Take a look, particularly at the colors. What can you say about just the colors in this sunset? Describe the colors and how they feel to you.
