30 Second Poem Challenge
Updated: Jun 29, 2019
As the title describes, today I will be attempting to write a poem in no more than 30 seconds. I have never done something like this before, however the challenge of writing a novel in a month is how I wrote Running to Willow. I admit, I am a really slow writer though so... Here goes nothing.
Note: I will NOT be fixing grammar errors, no turning back.
Roses of yellow and peaches of orange
How do thy sunflowers fill with the yellow
Like the sun and its rays
The cotton candy and its pink
The dogs and their bones
Ok... First impressions:
1. I am really random and weird
2. This is a really fun and it is a great creative exercise for authors
Because this was so enjoyable, I decided to do it once more and try to amp up my game.
A camera pointing at a beautiful daisy
Its petals a wondrous yellow
The center, so white like a brides maids veil
Reflecting the sun's shadow
This one was a little better but why am I so obsessed with flowers?
Anyway, I definitely recommend this and I might do it again. It is really good for self reflection and just silly writing!
