FRAGMENT OF A FEELING: My Entry for Sammi’s Weekend Writing Prompt #242


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!


Miles away from a familiar face,
cooped up by this rainy window;
half-opened cardboard boxes
and licked-clean Cup Noodles
for company.
I wish I could kiss Mom goodnight
like I used to when I was ten.

Is this what “homesick” feels like?


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!
