Poetry 101 Rehab: Skin

Do you miss the Writing 201: Poetry course by the Daily Post? Then join this blogging challenge, Poetry 101 Rehab, that will provide your poetry fix!

How It Works

Each Monday at 01:00 pm UTC I will publish a poetry prompt along with my response to it. You are invited to answer the prompt, twist it or ignore it; write a poem of your own or share a poem by another author.

I would love to hear about your inspiration, your creative process or other poetry related thoughts, but this is no way obligatory. Nothing is obligatory in this challenge, the idea is to get together, talk poetry and have fun!

How You Can Join

Anyone can participate, anytime you want. Publish your poetry post and add a link to it to the InLinkz link-up below my post, or share your link in a comment. Use the tag Poetry 101 Rehab, so we can find each other in the Reader.

I will act as your hostess, and I’ll be here for you to reply your comments, read your verses, like and comment. While my blog is the starting point for the challenge, do visit fellow poets in the link-up and chat to them on their blogs!


The Prompt: Skin

Peeling the skin

Of a tangerine

Thinking if things

Can feel


Being skinned, ripped


Torn apart and

Devoured alive

This week’s prompt is SKIN. My interpretation confuses the culinary and the pathological in keeping with my penchant for the morbid. You are invited to follow your own penchants and inspirations though, be they dark or more light-hearted. What will your take on the keyword SKIN be? Blog about it in a poetry post and share your link below!

Just Thursday Blog Hop: Appreciating the Mundane


It’s another Thursday, which means it’s time for the Just Thursday blog hop co-hosted by Rebekah, Nuvofelt and me. The idea is to look around yourself and find something nice or interesting in ordinary, everyday objects or things.

In my contribution for the challenge, I took a different perspective of a grey block of flats: I peeked through a colourful children’s house at a playground in front of it. Now it’s up to you: find your appreciation for something mundane, blog about it and share your link in the comments!


Greetings and Apologies

This is just to say hello from London and apologise for my quietness this week. While my blog posts have been scheduled and I’m even trying to keep up with my Phoneography Project 365, I don’t have the space and strength to respond all your lovely comments now. I should be home by the end of the week though, and I’ll catch up with each single comment and all your Poetry 101 Rehab contributions as well. My apologies and thank you for bearing with me!
