The Rhyme Sublime prompt for week 5 is to write a poem using 20 words. I enjoy Genre Shorties and decided to follow a similar concept for this week’s prompt. No particular form needs to be used. The poem simply needs to be 20 words, no more and no less. This does not include the title. Keep it to twenty, you’ll see it’s just plenty! Find my example of this week’s prompt here.
Last week the Week 4 prompt for Rhyme Sublime was to write a love poem. With Valentines in mind, February is the season of love. The results prompt were impressive and included a few Catena Rondo in accordance with another prompt from Mindful Poetry. If you have not written a Catena Rondo yet, give it a try (it’s fun and you’ll learn something). The guidelines are here.
Let’s check out what everyone at Rhyme Sublime wrote for Week 4:
Love is certainly an inspiring topic with a myriad of different and compelling responses! In honor of Valentine’s Day, Rhyme Sublime is showing a little love to everyone who participated in the Week 4 prompt. You will all be featured this week so we can share some love together, whether fleeting or forever! It’s a sweet variation from the three usual featured poets in the previous weeks, meant to inspire everyone.
