#verseday Endings

#verseday is a Twitter hashtag I've come up with to promote poetry writing. I invite Twitter people to suggest poetry topics by noon Eastern each Thursday. Participants must then draft poems by noon Eastern Friday. The resulting poems can be submitted anywhere, including The 5-2: Crime Poetry Weekly and NoirCon's First Annual Poetry Contest.

Even if you've never written a poem before, you're invited. Taking the time to think poetically can help your creativity on other projects. If you'd like to participate, tweet your topics, tagged #verseday, by noon Thursday, December 22. My topic this week is ending.

Write a poem about an ending or endings by noon Friday, December 23. Incidentally, The 5-2 is accepting love- or passion-themed crime poetry if you wish to tie the three elements together.
