NaPoWriMo Prompt 18

Day Eighteen On April 18, 2022 “…Last but not least, here is today’s prompt (optional, as always). It’s based on Faisal Mohyuddin’s poem “Five Answers to the Same Question.” Today, I’d like to challenge you to write your own poem that provides five answers to the same question – without ever specifically identifying the question that is being answered.”

Five Answers to Something

Cotton socks, black, white

and tan, pairs for all occasions


tee shirts, all the colours of the rainbow

long sleeves for winter, short for summer


fleece pajamas, two pairs, with nightgowns

some with pants too, some without


sweatpants, grey, purple, navy, wheat,

sweatshirts, grey, white, and lighter grey


sweaters, striped and plain, wool and polyester,

thick stitch and thin, every kind for every sort of weather.
