A Poetry Prompt: Cold

Blue Rose

The Purpose

Poetry is a great resource – even if you are reading this as someone who writes novels. How? Because they teach you the art of well-refined and to-the-point prose. If you can learn rhythm, you can learn writing.

For this prompt, we want you to focus on creating rhythm. Try to form a consistent pattern within the syllables, giving each line its own freedom to roll off the tongue.

The Prompt

Scenery/Vibe: A field. It’s wet and raining. But at the other side, you can see a sunny meadow. That shines brighter and brighter with every step you take. It’s right there, calling for you.

Poem’s Message: That even when it’s cold and dreary, the sunlight will prevail.

Try this prompt for size and create something based on it. If you do write something, please share it with us in one way or another. Tag us in a post, post it in the comments, send it to us in an email – we’d love to read your work.

Who knows? If you send something our way and we really like the way you write, we might just offer you a discount on our editing services. Or we might even edit a few chapters for free. It’s worth a try on your part.

You can reach us with your submission or with any questions/inquiries here.
