KFP Asleep on My Lap


For today’s prompt, it’s okay to daydream…

  • Write a poem based on a dream. It could be a recent one or a recurring dream. To make the imagery pack more power, consider removing any references to “dream” and “sleep” from the poem.

If you’d like, share a link to your poem in the comments. If you decide to paste your poem in the comments instead, remember that poems shared in the comments are not considered published in Wild Violet.
