Hello Vocalites! I'm back with another challenge, competition, prompt thingo.

Here's the deal this time: I'm going to give you five prompts which will just be one or two words with no context. You have to make a poem from it. You can do one prompt or combine multiple, it doesn't matter. You can also enter as many entries as you want. It's that simple.

The challenge closes on January 2oth 12pm AEST, so make sure you share the link to your entries in the comments before then. I'll be sharing a separate story with the complete list of entries shortly after that and will also be announcing 1st, 2nd and 3rd place.

The Prompts:

  1. Patchwork
  2. Dandelions
  3. Babushka Dolls
  4. Bullet Holes
  5. 2am

Happy writing and may the force be with you :)
