This Week’s Prompt (May 3)– STARRY NIGHTS.

HOW THE CHALLENGE WORKS:

Go where the prompt leads you and publish a post on your blog that responds to the prompt. It can be any variation of the prompt and/or image. Remember to keep it family friendly; this needs to be a safe and fun space for all.

Link your blog to Eugi’s Causerie with a pingback. You may also place a copy of the URL of your post in the comments of the current week’s prompt. Responses posted prior to the next Thursday prompt release can be included in the Roundup.

………

Starry nights don’t have to be
trips into the wilderness,
two days’ luggage in the car,
marshmallows toasting over a fire,
guitar strumming in the dark.

Starry nights can also be
long chats with an old friend,
a warming cup of coffee,
the scent of yellowing pages,
the gentle breathing of your pup
as you both drift to sleep.

For the visually challenged reader, this image shows a well-dressed young man of African descent sitting on stairs. His hands are gripping the railing and he is staring intently at the camera.

HOW THE CHALLENGE WORKS:

  • You can write a post on your blog and create a pingback to link to the original post.
  • Write an original story, poem or a caption.
  • There is no limit to words or format but keep it family-friendly.
  • If you post a response before next Sunday, Sadje will be able to add it to her roundup post.
  • Sadje will do a round-up next Sunday before the next Prompt is posted.
  • It is always helpful if you can give your post/story/poem a title.
  • Paste a link of your post in the comments section so that Sadje doesn’t miss anyone in the roundup post.

Please tag your responses with

Hey stranger, what do you see?
A killer
with no blood on my hands—
A criminal
shoved behind bars—
A cheater
with nothing to hide—
A thief?

Or instead, do you see
an artist
head full of ideas—
a dreamer
heart full of hope—
someone to love,
a fellow human being?

It’s unfortunate
that things must be
so black and white.
It’s unfortunate
we still have to fight,
to stay above the surface,
to say what is right.

So tell me, stranger,
what do you see?
Is it someone else?

Or is it me?

HOW THE CHALLENGE WORKS:

Devereaux Frazier and Beth Amanda are currently hosting the Tuesday Writing Prompt Challenge which was started by star writer Christine Ray. The prompts are designed to be quick challenges that can be written in 10 to 15 minutes, inspire you creatively, are fun, and get everyone interacting.

Bitten
by the prickly winter wind;
Abandoned
on the busy pavement:

She was once
a magnificent princess
out of a gift-wrapped box,
now just a rag doll
lying in a pool of slush.

Will you rescue her?
