April is National Poetry Month!
You’re thinking, wait, poetry? I thought this was a flash fiction site? But that doesn’t mean we can’t support our fellow writers, regardless of genre!
This month, find a poem. Use it to prompt a flash fiction piece.
You could write about two strangers meeting on a lonely forest road; a woman whose prized bird escapes its cage; two people in a post-apocalyptic world fighting to keep a fire lit; or of a parcel of groceries, forgotten in the sun.
It doesn’t have to exactly follow the events of the poem, as long as it is clearly inspired by it, in tone or some other way. Be sure to include a link to the poem if possible, or the text itself.
