#verseday Fooling

#verseday is a Twitter hashtag I came 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.

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, January 17.

I'm currently seeking poems to run at The 5-2 for the five weeks of April, National Poetry Month. These will be part of the blog tour, 30 Days of The 5-2, and I thought I'd give them a theme of fooling or being fooled.

Write a poem about fooling or being fooled by Friday, January 18.
