This Week's Prompt:
An aphorism is a concise statement that contains a bit of wisdom or wit about life, such as “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” or “Honesty is the best policy.” Write a poem that is either based on an aphorism or contains one or more aphorisms.

Next Week's Prompt:
Let’s write a poem about one (or each!) of the 12 Jungian archetypes. The first archetype is “the artist.”
