Hello friends, it's me, Shay/Fireblossom with your weekly word list writing prompt! This time, the list is taken from the writings of poet Sylvia Plath, and includes words from many of her best known poems, and some from other, lesser known works.
The idea is simple: just write a poem of any style or length, OR a flash 55 (a poem or flash fiction consisting of exactly 55 words, not counting the title) using at least 3 of the 20 words provided. Then just copy a link to your poem and leave it in the comments. Easy peasy lemon squeezy.
This prompt remains "live" through Friday.
Here are your words:
What an excellent list. Thanks so much Shay, for hosting this. Tonight my insomnia worked in my favor, and had me happily tossing and turning words, which is much better than tossing and turning myself. ;) Here is the link:ReplyDelete
Wow, you are linked already! I've been to read and I love your poem for any number of reasons, Joy. I've left a long comment on site. Suffice to say here that I loved every word.Delete
Thanks, dear. It's all due to you and this excellent list that got me nudged off high center to write.Delete
This list is an awesome one!! I cannot wait to see what great poems these lead to. Thank you so much for doing this Shay!!ReplyDelete
Hi Carrie! I'm so pleased that you like the list! I, too, am really looking forward to seeing what people will write for it!Delete
I hope I have done Plath justice here....a bit out of my comfort zone, so it may fall short, but I enjoyed doing it. Thank you again Shay!ReplyDelete

Hi Shay! You drove me to it with this Sylvia Plath homage, and my homage (of sorts) to Hollywood.ReplyDelete
If I drove you to it, then I am proud of myself for that, and need to get a spiffy chauffeur hat to wear! I loved what you wrote. "Of sorts" for sure.Delete
