A word prompt to get your creativity flowing this weekend. How you use the prompt is up to you. Write a piece of flash fiction, a poem, a chapter for your novel…anything you like. Or take the challenge below – there are no prizes – it’s not a competition but rather a fun writing exercise. If you want to share what you come up with, please leave a link to it in Sammi’s Comment Section.
This week the prompt took me back to a poem I wrote when my youngest son was somewhere between four and six. It’s been a long time ago. 😉 I wrote a lot of poetry back then as a means of journalling. I took this one out of mothballs and gave it a trim and an overhaul. The sketch is from the same time.
Today you are a cowboy
Astride your faithful steed.
Other times you’re an intrepid warrior
Stalking family pets.
You live in a world all your own,
Chattering for hours
About nothing in particular.
By turns you are both angel and rogue,
Challenging me to love you
At all cost
To my sanity.
