Okay, I love how many community challenges/competitions/writing prompts have been going around Vocal at the moment and wanted to join in by creating another one.

So here is my simple but open-ended writing prompt:

Write a poem about a colour.

It can be a basic colour like blue, or a specific shade like cerulean. It can be about something or multiple things that are that colour or what you associate with that colour or even how that colour makes you feel. It can even be multiple colours, whatever you want.

This one isn't a competition, just a prompt, but I'd love for you to drop the links in the comment section if you take part, which I really hope you do!

Here's one to get you started:

    Paul and I both did a Yellow one this week, how funny! This was a fun prompt, even though my poem is not exactly happy...But anyway, been meaning to get to this; sorry it took so long, lol. https://vocal.media/poets/coal-mine-feathers

  • Possibly not “Better late than never!” My first poetry attempt in over a decade… weighty content! https://vocal.media/poets/rambunctious-red

  • Great one! I wrote mine 😀

    Annnnd, here's another - fresh off the brain! https://vocal.media/poets/the-deepest-blues

    Whether black is a colour may be up for debate, but here! https://vocal.media/poets/bleakest-raven-black

    Here is one I did earlier in the year - https://vocal.media/poets/red-to-blue - it's funny because I'm working on one about blue at the moment for your prompt and guess what word is in the draft at the moment (oxygenating...like your poem with Mackenzie hehe)

  • I have written many pertaining to colour, this was for my first Vocal Challenge but I forgot to enter https://vocal.media/poets/what-colour-is-you-canvas?via=mike

  • Mackenzie Davis2 months ago

    Wow, everyone's submissions so far have been incredible! I am excited to try my hand...What a wonderful idea, Poppy! It's making me remember our convos about words now, haha.
