What I Would Say To An Ailing Houseplant

A writing prompt from 642 Things to Write About. The original: A houseplant is dying, tell it why it must live.

What would I say to a dying houseplant? Well, I certainly wouldn’t beat around the bush …


Potted plant,
I forbid you from dying,
So smarten up and stop your lying,
Or to the composter you shall go!

Now, it’s your turn!
