I was feeling a little stagnant so decided to join Local Gems' Two Futures poetry challenge. I had to write 15 poems in 7 days inspired by a daily prompt - one poem looking to a positive future, and the other a negative future.
Today's prompt was a hobby. I went totally blank. After a few minutes, however, a few ideas to explore presented themselves. I decided I would also add to this challenge by trying to make the poems rhyme, something I struggle with.
Below are my two creations. Great works of poetry? No. But I was given a challenge and I rose to the occasion, so I consider it a victory. They are very raw and unedited at this point, and were created from my imagination, not my personal life.
