Day 28’s challenge
For Day 28 the prompt is to write ”a prose poem in the form/style of a postcard. If you need some inspiration, why not check out some images of vintage postcards?”
For today’s prompt I was fortunate enough to have time to read the resource:
A poem that captures a moment in time with a strong sense of place. As postcards often are, it is a short letter addressed to someone specific.
I thought about holidays I’ve been on and googled postcard images to get inspiration. I tried to think about who the postcard is to. I thought about writing a postcard based on a disaster holiday. Then the idea struck for a postcard to someone you long to be there but really can’t be. At first I thought of a prisoner’s wife and then I decided on a widow.
I’m not confident at writing prose but I’m pleased with what I’ve created.
