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:
- Let the unknowable touch the buckle of my spine – Little Summer Poem Touching the Subject of Faith by Mary Oliver
- Counting the bread and wine by autumn’s gain – Poppies on the Wheat by Helen Hunt Jackson
- O, know, sweet love, I always write of you – Sonnet 76 by William Shakespeare
