Paint Chip Poetry Prompt #10
We are at week 10 and spring is on its way. That’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it because spring is what the world needs.
Oh wait, that’s our prompt for the week: what the world needs. And the paint chip words are aboretum, pool, dandelion, cotton candy, wonderful wisteria, full moon, and genie lamp.
Your challenge, if you’re up to it (and I know you are), is to write a poem about what you think the world needs, using at least four of the prompt words.
Here’s my poem:
Strolling through the arboretum
in the light of a full moon as
cotton candy clouds threaten
to obscure its glory
A sneaky dandelion
hides its sunny face
in the crevice of a rock
waiting for the morning sun
waft over the waves
of the fountain pool
tantalizing my imagination
Such nights are just
what the world needs
No genie lamp required
God provided all that’s desired
Are you up for the challenge? Do you feel like you know what the world needs? Then come play along. Post your poem in the comments, or post it on your own blog and put a link in the comments. If you write one in your private journal, but you aren’t ready to show it to the world, at least comment and let me know you’ve done so.

I finally responded to the prompt in time to share!
this was fun, Linda 🙂
What The World Needs
The Cheshire cat will not appear on a full moon
A trip to the dentist will not end too soon
Rubbing the genie lamp will not grant your wish
Sitting and hoping will not fill the dinner dish
What the world needs is less “will nots”
Start thinking positive and connect the dots
If your cotton candy is sticky then jump in the pool
A rock is just a rock but can make a great tool
Don’t let a new dandelion create any hysteria
The new arboretum has a wonderful wisteria
What the world needs are positive thoughts
Try eliminating the negatives and give it a shot
That is some great advice!
I agree. Flowers can make quite a difference
