For today’s prompt, pick something from the following poem to imitate. It could be the stanza structure, the theme, rhyme scheme, meter, take your pick.

I chose the theme of a parent and child interacting.

Summer is a time to imagine
castles of grass. The kingdom
begins the size of our backyard,
but as you mow the edges,
coming closer to the middle,
the grassy knolls become bare.

I laugh as the lawnmower
eats the rectangles like Pac-Man.
