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. Happy Writing – Maureen Thorson

This is an intriguing prompt. I decided to write it using the Aquarian poetry form. 🙂❤🌷❤

Five Answers to the Same Question.

1
We wage
war upon our
fellow human beings
grab land,

That is
not ours, we are
grasping and greedy for
power.


2
We live
in tribes and will
only join other tribes
when we

Need more
power, we make
dynasties by marriage
our strength.


3
We think
the strong people
survive, we hate weakness
we say.

They live
inferior
lives - die from poverty
and fear.


4
We have
religions, but
many have none at all,
they are,

Lost souls,
Wars take place
all the time we don't learn
lessons.


5
When we
reach old age we
become invisible,
no one

Listens
to our knowledge
the young dismiss our lived
wisdom.
