AN ABUNDANCE OF BLUE: My Entry for Sammi Cox’s Weekend Writing Prompt #236


Each week, Sammi Cox will provide an exact number of words you can use to write a poem or piece of prose based on the given prompt. You can use any format or style you like; go wherever your inspiration takes you. The only rules are these:

  • Your poem / prose must contain this week’s word (see note below). The word does not have to count towards the exact word count total – it can be in the title, or the first letters of the lines of a poem can spell it out – you can be as creative as you want as long as it’s there somewhere.
  • The length of your poem / prose must match the number of words stated in this week’s challenge. No more. No less.
  • A note on the word: you can use any variation of the word (for example: call, calls, calling, called etc). If you find you are struggling to use this week’s word you may substitute it for a synonym – just include a note to explain the swap. Remember, this is supposed to be fun!


I stare out the window by my wardrobe, entranced—
the sky’s taken my fancy again;
I must match its hue.
Is it azure?
Perhaps teal?
Electric blue?

Whatever the sky’s wearing,
it won’t ever make me feel blue!


An aspiring writer, among many other things. Loves crafting memorable, heartwarming slice-of-life stories. Enjoys creating magical, fantastical adventures for readers to immerse themselves in!
