First things first, the prompts we will now introduce will be used for TWO weeks, I cannot be here next week because of exams but I will be back the week after (technically I already am working a lot on my exams and should even be on today, so that might explain the short journal).
Let’s have a look at last week’s poems then.
First off is ‘’Notes from the remote’’ by
Notes from the RemoteI see a lot you know
All sorts of shows
The family can never
Make up their mind
I hear fights between
Siblings, and the
Husband and wife
The heads of the
Household as they say
This family can't decide
On anything not with
Each other or for themselves
They press guide and switch
They can't decide on volume
Either, they want it more quiet
Or louder, then they fight with
Each other some more
I have to say I actually find it quite impressive that somebody could even work with this prompt and this is basically what I had in mind when I came up with the prompt.
Well written since because of the style it is written in you don’t stop at the end of the line, however you continue directly on the next line, this manages to hold the reader’s attention much longer making it much more fun for the reader to read themselves.
Next up is ‘’Exuberance’’ by
ExuberanceA testimony to faith
And Zen, and plenitude, on high!
Fair winds and fair-weather friends, so nigh,
Belligerent foes beware, and behold!
For this night, you can take none away;
For this day, it shall all be mine:
Victory, aggressor, you shall not fare well here.
A toast to you, a test of mine.
Only time can take this away,
This joy washing over me.
Blast away that ignorance
Preventing you from sharing my mirth …
Shake away pain and despair,
Wrought not by my own hand, nor yours.
Come away to the land of sun and sea!
Fret not for what is and for what is only yet to be.
I have to say that this is one of the most impressive poems that I have seen in the prompts.
Very well constructed and very well worded.
I would highly suggested pressing that link there and have a look yourself.
The new prompts for the next 2 weeks are:
-A minute of failure, just think about that one for a while and imagine what you would feel like the minute after you do something wrong (like being called in front of the class to do a math problem on the chalkboard and make a very silly mistake by writing an + instead of a -). Kind of embarrassing isn’t it?
-Bonding with another person, write a poem what it feels like to bond with another person, be it family, friends or even a pet (though those aren’t technically persons, I guess the prompt is just ‘’bonding’’).
That was all for this week folks.
I will see you all in two weeks.
Have a nice day and keep on writing!
