The Totally Optional Prompt is 'Send a Message'

Ancient Chinese poems are often messages. A soldier writing back from the front. A traveler writing ahead, or behind. A government official writing from a distant assignment, or exile. This weeks challenge is to contemplate a real or imaginary situation and send a message.

Remarks on the prompt, your latest poetry discovery, or this 'poetry exchange' blog can be made as comments to this posting. Late Wednesday night, between one rerun and another, I'll post a Request For Poems, where you can leave a link to your poem inspired by the prompt, or any other poem you want to share.
