Today's posted poem is "Diary of a Carpenter Wasp" by Gary L. McDowell. His chapbook also includes poems about mosquitos and birds, and persona poems written from the viewpoints of a yellow jacket and a horsefly.
Your prompt for this week's writing exercise is to write a persona poem from the point of view of one of the beings pictured below. A prose piece can also be written from this animal point of view. Learn a few facts about the creature and incorporate them into your piece, but focus on the perspective of that specific being in that moment/action/emotion/event.
Your choices pictured here are a river otter, a piranha, a zebra foal, and a monarch butterfly.
As always, have fun!
