It’s week 33 and it’s been a crazy week. I didn’t think about writing this week’s prompt until I was getting ready for bed last night and saw a comment on last week’s prompt saying she’d made it just in time because the new one was going up in the morning.
This week we’re writing about things From Best to Worst and the words and phrases to draw from are lap swim, the deep end, green with envy, heirloom tomato, firefly, patina, and wishbone. Your challenge is to use at least five of these words in your poem. You can rank them from best to worst, or write about a time thing went from best to worst. Or maybe you have a completely unique take on this topic. I look forward to reading what you come up with.
So this is a quick write, even for me, so I don’t guarantee it will be any good. But here goes.
Things Go from Best to Worst Lap swimming in the shallow end Splashing around with my friends Was the best way To spend a summer day Until I almost drowned In the deep end, sinking down While treading water Creating nightmare fodder Thanksgiving is a joyous holiday Spent with family who drove a long way To share a meal of turkey and stuffing Green with envy over mom's potato whipping It's simply the best until it's time To break the wishbone covered in slime Instead we have to let it dry The worst part is when we say goodbye Back to summer in the garden For the whiplash I beg your pardon Heirloom tomatoes are growing there The best veggies are fresh like air At night we watch a firefly Lighting up the dark night sky For me summer is the best season The worst is winter and cold is the reason
Now it’s your turn. You can either share your poem in the comments or share it on your own blog and put a link in the comments. Let the fun begin!
