It’s already the fourth Friday in August! I can’t believe how quickly this month is flying by. I’m glad I decided to do this short verse prompts this month and have been delighted at some of the lovely poems you all have been inspired to write.
This week the paint chip words and phrases you have to choose from are acorn, pearl, and black hole. The color scheme reminds me fall is just around the corner and summer will have to come to an end. But for now, let’s write some beautiful or exciting or joyous summer verses.
Please pick just one of these words or phrases and write a poem of exactly 31 words, not counting the title. You can actually omit a title if you like.
Post your poem in the comments, or post it on your own blog or website and share a link in the comments. Invite your friends and readers to come join the fun.
hidden in an oyster’s slime a tiny grit of sand sublime is transformed into a beauty deep opalescent pearl as it sleeps God transfigures my grit too into something brand new
