Prompt: “Today, I’d like to challenge you to write a poem that engages with another art form – it might be about a friend of yours who paints or sculpts, your high school struggles with learning to play the French horn, or a wonderful painting, film, or piece of music you’ve experienced – anything is in bounds here, so long as it uses the poem to express something about another form of art.” From napowrimo.net.

Starving and barefoot
Barely able to stand
Faces etched with desperation
Leaving their world
Headed to the unknown
…… to end hunger, feed their families
