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: Thaw
That won’t get warm
That will not thaw
Like a corpse
On the slab
This week’s prompt is fresh and sprightly: THAW. My somewhat gloomy poem elaborates on the keyword in a figurative sense. You can do the same and describe what you associate with the word THAW. Or you can go for a literal meaning and talk about snow melting and spring coming to the northern hemisphere. What will your take on the keyword THAW be? Blog about it in a poetry post and share your link below!
