Turn that Frown Upside Down: Prompt

Today's poem on my blog, Home on New Year's, by Dina Ben-Lev, is a great example of the cliche "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade."


Whether Ben-Lev's poem is meant to be sincere, sarcastic, sad, sweet, or something else, it can be read many ways (which is part of its genius).


For this week's prompt, take what is generally perceived to be a a bad situation (break-up on Saint Valentine's Day, fender bender, power outage, delay at the airport, etc.) and write about its possible upsides.


You can have a definite tone in your piece or, like Ben-Lev, leave your piece open to interpretation.


Whatever you do, have a wonderful and safe New Year's Eve! Resolve to be creative in 2024!
