Poetry Prompts Day 20 - OctPoWriMo 2016

I'm enjoying my new job but I miss reading more of your poems. I haven't worked at a regular job in years and it is definitely taxing but I feel good about it. I'm trying to stay positive about the fact that it is taking so long to make a living from writing. For now it is going to have to be a part time endeavor.

On a super positive note, I was able to get my car fixed today which has been out of commission for several weeks. Yay!

How is your month going? Anything new and interesting?

Day 20 Prompt: White


White has so many connotations, white flag, white hat - hero in the old west movies, white - purity, white - clean, white light, white clouds, and the list could go on. What is the first thing that comes to mind when you think of white? Start from there and write for ten minutes.

Suggested poetry type: Tetractys

Word Prompts:
