I have returned to micropoetry this week for my response to the New Unofficial On-Line Writer’s Guild because these prompts seemed to lend themselves that way, or it might be because cancelled appointments have been reinstated and I wondered if I’d have time to develop anything longer. So here are a shadorma, American Cinquain and tanka.

Thank you to TNKerr as ever for this week’s prompts.

 

Limpid pools:

Sunlight reflecting;

Inviting;

Refreshing.

Watch out for the undertow!

Danger lurks beneath.

 

Notice.

Look at these scars.

Open your eyes and ears.

Self-harm dulls the pain others cause.

Hear me.

 

when the boys arrive

the party will get started

alcohol will flow

they’ll dance and jive till cock crow

unless their brothers drive by

 


 

This week’s prompts are:

  1. limpid pools
  2. look at these scars
  3. when the boys arrive

 

Go ahead and dive in, set your imagination free!
Write something
Ready, Set, Go – you have 25 minutes, but if that is not possible, take as long as you need.

Have fun

  1. There’s a lot to be drawn from what is and isn’t said in that Cinquain. It’s my favourite of three remarkable pieces!

    Thanks

    • You’re just a flatterer you. I’m glad you got he unsaid in the Cinquain – that’s what I was hoping for.
