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:
- with a dread that took my breath away – Three Songs at the End of Summer by Jane Kenyon
- Malignant Fate sat by and smiled – Ode on the Death of a Favourite Cat by Thomas Gray
- You look across the fruit and flowers – At a Dinner Party by Amy Levy
