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:
- But I would bury my ambition – Teach Me I Am Forgotten by the Dead by Ralph Waldo Emerson
- Nor would I be a Poet – I would not paint – a picture by Emily Dickinson
- On a morning otherwise sunless – Heights of Folly by Charles Simic
