Here’s my entry on my own writing prompt contest I opened up late last night. Directions are over here. Cheers.
I’ve tried a few different writing prompt contests in the past. I took two of my favorite things and smushed them together this time: music and writing. So what are you waiting for? Take a stab at it, my friend. Let me know if you think this is fun and we can continue the jig. Let’s have some fun while becoming better writers. Cheers.
Let There Be Light
I don’t mind the cold or that white stuff they call snow
What I mind is the lack of light, if it’s forty days in a row.
Something kicks in, some hibernational urge
And I find myself laying in bed
Snoring a symphonic dirge
– A.R. Clayton
Want to take a try? We’re here, cheering you on. Happy writing. ✏️
Here’s my entry. Join in on the fun here. The instructions and rules can be found via the link. Good writing and good luck! 🎃
There is a being, you see, upon this evening’s brow;
two stories up, where the night’s extinguished candle was used to enshroud.
Over the flame she turned, over their breath she heard, their pensive dishes of gruel and meat,
their spoons clashing, bread ripping, as they spoke of things without understanding;
without understanding at all.
Notes of music spilt onto the wooden floors; clanging mouths and spit soon sealed every door.
A rush away, chains soon met.
Truth was heard whispering nevermore;
it was beckoned back through the Hall’s front doors.
Now with violence ripped and pages fell,
Darkened calendars and lighted gold,
the lady of the manor haunts her lonely, ever darkened but discreet,
Hey, you there. Yes, you. Go to Chelsea’s page and submit your own Terrible Poem take on Unusual Ways to Make Money. Read the rules, mind the PG rating and dive in. We need fresh blood of the terrible kind.
