Today, we bring you a new craft resource, in the form of this history and exploration of the prose poem. This essay helpfully catalogs several different styles of prose poem, with examples, and possible strategies for writing.
And now for our prompt (optional, as always). Following the suggestion of our craft resource, we challenge you today to draft a prose poem in the form/style of a postcard. If you need some inspiration, why not check out some images of vintage postcards? I’m particularly fond of this one.
My Prose poem on a postcard
The Poem itself, if the above is unreadable…
We went to see the Eiffel Tower yesterday. It wasn’t at all like what I expected, not half as romantic. Maybe it was the heat, the crowd or managing the pick-pockets that got to me.In fact, Anne thought it was the most boring looking tower and the one near Nana’s home was so much better. It took us three hours to get to the top but it was worth the wait. Riya clicked a lot of pictures. She said she didn’t want daddy to miss out on anything. We went on a dinner cruise on the Seine river last evening. It was ethereal-seeing the tower lit up against the black sky. It didn’t look cold and boring any more but seemed warm and so romantic. I wished so much you were here with us. Miss you loads… Love,
