#VerseDay #Haikews

#VerseDay is a Twitter hashtag I came up with to promote poetry writing. I invite Twitter users 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, June 27.

My topic this week was suggested by Craig Collins-Young for his #Haikews Project. Tweet a haiku about the news including the hashtag #haikews and a link to the original news article by noon Friday, June 28.
