The idea of these challenges is to use the given prompts to create a piece of flash fiction (100-200 words) or a poem (14-20 lines)
As a poet I read a lot of poetry and some more on top. I also find one line taken out of context can lead to a whole new dimension of creativity. The idea of this challenge therefore is to create what comes to mind from lines of poetry.
This week’s lines of poetry are:
- Why preyest thou thus upon the poet’s heart – Sonnet — to Science by Edgar Allan Poe
- And lunch blended into naptime – An Ordinary Life by Barbara Crooker
- plugged in lamps and the television set – Old Age Home by Burt Kimmelman
