Hello everyone, it's me with your weekly word list poetry prompt! This time our source is the great American poet Langston Hughes. Known for incorporating informal mid-century black parlance into his poems, Hughes gave us a rich portrait of the reality of life in Harlem, both the joys and the sorrows.
I have intentionally left out some of the parlance I just mentioned, because our goal here is not to copy Hughes's own style, but to use these list words to create our own original poetry. If we can manage to include an homage to Hughes in the process, so much the better.
What we do here is to include at least three of the twenty listed words in an original poem of any length or style. Please link back to this post, sign the linky so we can read what you've created, and remember to visit others cos we all love knowing that others are reading what we write. And, as always, have fun!
