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: Second
A split second
You come second
A track record
This week’s prompt is SECOND, as this is indeed the second installment of the Poetry 101 Rehab challenge. In my miniature poem, I played on the different meanings of the word, using “second” both as a unit of time and as an ordinal numeral. My tone is characteristically dark, Dickinsonian or Plathian, if you like.
Your response could serve as a lighthearted counterbalance and be, say, more Whitmanesque or Ginsbergian. Or you could just take it easy and write about whatever and however you like! What will your take on the keyword SECOND will be? Blog about it in a poetry post and share your link below!
