National Poetry Month Writing Challenge: Week 3

I couldn’t agree more with C. Joybell’s quote, “I have realized; it is during the times I am far outside my element that I experience myself the most.” It’s been another week of the poetry challenge and it’s only getting better. This week was tough, like the previous week, but so much more whole. It forced me to explore poetry in forms and rhythms that I would not have attempted before.

As we draw closer to the end of the month, I am more excited to finish this challenge with 30 new poems. Feel free to write poetry on any of the topics from the prompts, and let me know how the challenge has helped you. You can get my 30 day prompts from my post here.

If you haven’t had the time to follow the challenge, just pick out the prompts that suit you and get going for this very last week.

Meanwhile, here is my poetry from week 3. Take your time to read it and tell me which one is your favourite. Even rank them if you will. I would love to hear from all of you.

Day 15: The poem that I would never write.
Day 16: Writing a poem inspired by the color Red.
Day 17: Writing a poem inspired by artwork. As can be seen, I was inspired by ‘Girl With A Pearl Earring’ by Johannes Vermeer.
Day 18: Lighter Shade of Red. It was an attempt at deceitful poetry that by the looks and start should feel completely different to what it actually wants to say.
Day 19: Writing a poem about a tree as a metaphor for life.
Day 20: Meaning of Summer.
Day 21: Writing a poem that includes your FB/Instagram/WhatsApp about.

P.S. A very happy world creativity and innovation day to all of you wonderful poets out there.

    How can I choose a favourite? Maybe ‘tasting red’ or maybe all of them!
