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:
- the whisper of blessing – Dear Michael (25) by Mark McMorris
- when I was a child and nothing seemed to have changed – One summer by WS Merwin
- Hail to the low dull rumble, dull and dead – The House-top by Herman Melville
