Love to Hate You: Poetry Prompt

What is something you hate?


Broccoli? Sitting in traffic? Superhero movies? Purple?

The bangs you gave yourself? Cigarette smoke? Spiders?


Certainly you have a number of things you can do without, but for this writing prompt, you need to choose just one.


After you've chosen, write about the thing as if you love it. Really praise the thing--find goodness, even greatness, and make your reader see it, too. Do some research if you need to, but get to that silver lining.


Be sure to title your piece Why I Love, In Praise of, Ode to, or something similar.
