Today in history the Titanic sunk after hitting an iceberg. For our prompt today write about this unfortunate tragedy from the perspective of a passenger.
In his poem, Fire-Caught, American poet Langston Hughes writes, about two moths circling flame; one with the power to avoid the temptation of the fire and the other eventually consumed by it. Fire is such a powerful and deadly force, but so is temptation. Resisting the lure of something so gratifying and yet so wicked is often too hard to do. Write about temptation!
Today’s prompt takes its inspiration from William Carlos William’s poem “This is Just To Say.” Have you ever had a moment where you did something wrong but could not feel remorse about it? Tell us about it in your very own #sorrynotsorry poem! If you want, you can even send us your poem in a tweet to @NYWriters, or take a picture and share it with us on Instagram (same username).
