Challenge Wednesday 19 February

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

    1. Thank you for playing. I don’t set a deadline as I know the muse needs liberty. Really the word and line counts are there as a guideline for anyone wanting to play. All that maaters to me is if a prompt inspires you, you use it.

      Regards Jez
