Hey Muddy Buddies,
Welp...it's midweek, almost mid month. On the North Plain winter has cooked up a late spring snowstorm. I am fighting every urge to build a pillow fort and stay under covers for the rest of the year, and I know some of you feel that way too.
Todays prompt is for my pillow fort folk. A little jam that may get us grooving out of our funk, hopping out of our padded palaces, and push words on to the page. Non-pillow fort folk, you can also welcome to participate or bring us cookies.
Bishop Allen is an indie art school band with a few big hits under their belts. Their mostly acoustic sound is bright, melodic, with a sprinkle of self doubting franticness. Their song "The News from Your Bed" is an homage to how much fun you can have without leaving the flat - sort of. Give it a listen.
Write a poem using a phrase or line of lyrics from The News from You Bed. If you didn't like the song or find it particularly inspiring, feel free to write a poem about the news from your own bed (or pillow fort).
Go now Garden Dwellers and bring us back something shiny and new.
