Every Wednesday our creative writing prompt encourages you to take up your pen and indulge your author self!

Today is Earth Day. In keeping with our National Poetry Month theme, for today's prompt we'd like you to write a poem about the Earth. It can be a haiku, it can be alliteration or any other type of poem you like. Below is a poem by Emily Dickinson to inspire your writing.

"Nature" is what we see—
The Hill—the Afternoon—
Squirrel—Eclipse— the Bumble bee—
Nay—Nature is Heaven—
Nature is what we hear—
The Bobolink—the Sea—
Thunder—the Cricket—
Nay—Nature is Harmony—
Nature is what we know—
Yet have no art to say—
So impotent Our Wisdom is
To her Simplicity.
