You writers are certainly giving your imaginations a workout. So many great poems are pouring in each day for our challenge and with only two weeks left, we can’t wait to see what’s in store for this week. There is still a lot of writing to do, so if you haven’t joined us yet, pick a few topics from the list and get some poems written. You get a chance to have your poem featured in our weekend article and highlighted during the week.
The topics this week certainly spurred some fantastic poems. We are loving the creativity!
Check out our favorites from week 3 and please take a moment to look at each writer’s page:
What makes our mind tick? @bellalupa6 goes down that rabbit hole when at odds with the clock flip in this poem of a strange madness.
There were so many great poems for this prompt and it was hard to pick just one, so we chose two. Sue Lobo took us back to a time where being graceful and respectful had meaning, in her poem “Manners Maketh Man”, and @Sitaripoetry reminded us why living today is better than in the past.
Perched on a leaf, ready to take a magic carpet ride with the wind, M. Lancaster evokes the feeling of freedom in this descriptive poem.
Lyne Beringer gives us the harsh and real details in this game of life. Play it well.
Ken Allan Dronsfield shares a funny story about the hazards of sneezing in the wrong place at the wrong time.
What would have been your last words before the Titanic went under. Karen Payze gives us a harrowing ending in a farewell letter.
Daryl P. Hall gives us the simple things needed to escape the insanity – music and a furry friend.
Thank you again for participating in our challenge. As a reminder, please use the hashtag #ctuwritingprompt so that we are able to find your poems on social media or post them under CTU’s daily “Inspiration Call” posts on Facebook.
