Climb a Tree with “The Day Jobbers Essential Poetry Prompt”

This post was first published in October 2015 and I am re-posting it on that date. Please feel free to use the prompt despite the event being ended:

It’s autumn in the Northern Hemisphere, no doubt about it.

Leaves are changing colour and for some strange reason, it has reminded me of the apple tree we had in our garden when I was a child. It was an ancient tree of so-called “cooking apples”. They were ripe in August but pretty sour so you could not eat them. But for apple sauce, apple crumble and apple pie you could not get a better apple.

That was pretty much the only tree I ever climbed. It wasn’t high, and I could reach up to where the main two branches parted. Not that I’ve done it very often but now and then I got it into me.

So I thought it would be great to let this week’s “The Day Jobbers Essential Poetry Prompt” poem climb a tree.

It does not matter what form your poem takes, which rhythm it has and what you exactly write about as long as it climbs a tree :-). Can I see your creativity start working? I already have a few ideas but am not sure if I can realise them. But you will see later on in the week.

So this week’s prompt is:

Let your poem climb a tree!
