The Poetic Asides prompt today was to pick from one of five news headlines and write a poem:
- Spectator falls from 2nd deck
- Life under melting Arctic ice
- Disheartened by the disaster
- The Many Voices of Lauryn Hill
- If You Can’t Take the Heat, Use Fewer Jalapenos
All the headlines were grabby in their own way, but I just had to learn more about the melting Arctic ice, and in fact got waylaid by reading the article and watching the video. Several times in fact. Amazing.
