Sunday Scribblings looks like another place I’ll get prompts. Sleep isn’t finding me tonight, so here I go with another writing prompt today.
The latest prompt as of this post is Poem, “The word that strikes fear into the heart of many a writer.”
Here’s the bit of nonsense that came out of my fingers:
A poem to me is a strange thing
I’ve heard many but never wrote mine
If I wrote one, would it break the rules?
Would it rhyme, would it have any reason?
Not only rhyme, but poems have meter
Numbers, patterns of syllables, right?
I only know what high school taught me
Poems were things we studied in depth
My mind never saw on that level
Metaphor, simile, subtext? Ha!
My writing is subtle like a brick!
Anywho, check out Sunday Scribblings. Their prompts are simple, but quite effective judging by the community involvement.
