Hello again. It’s been a few days since I wrote something for this prompt challenge. Shall I explain where I’ve been? It’s not an interesting story AT ALL. I worked, the kids had school, and we binge watched episodes of 24 Hours To Hell and Back because we thought it was being taken off Hulu.
But, I’m still here. I had three prompt challenges I was checking in on during the month of August (you probably already knew that).
- The single word prompt that allows freedom and creativity (https://www.writerswrite.co.za/31-writing-prompts-for-august-2021/)
- The nonfiction journal prompts that allow for unblocking my mind (https://natashalh.com/august-journal-prompts-for-adults/)
- The poetry prompts (https://www.instagram.com/fallspoetry/)
Today, after skipping a few days, I decided to go with the poetry prompt.
The poetry prompts for this group of days surround songs. So, naturally, I decided to go with a blackout poem. The prompt led me to Long and Winding Road by the Beatles. I printed the lyrics and blacked out some, leaving behind only the words that formed my poem.
Of course, I’m not actually crazy about the result. I almost never am. I’m a very harsh critic of myself, actually. But I’m posting it anyway (both here and on Instagram). Enjoy!
