Hey everyone! I'm back with more prompts for this month!

For anyone who missed it, here's the winners and full list of entries for my January Prompts.

Like last time, you can use the words however you want (in a poem). Make of the prompt/s what you will, they're very open-ended. Write about one or more and submit however many entries you want, just make sure to share the link in the comment section.

This is pretty self-explanatory but just want to clarify, you can make each prompt singular or plural.

This time I'm making the deadline a little sooner. Submissions will close February 10 12pm AEST.

The Prompts

  1. Sirens
  2. Wind Chimes
  3. Sandcastles
  4. Postcard
  5. Grave


A/N - Check out the Facebook Page Vocal Voices in Minor for more prompts, challenges and a place to share each other’s work.


Happy writing!!

    Tossing this entry into the ring. Had some fun writing it, a little different structure than I've used before. https://vocal.media/poets/of-postcards-green-jays-and-gulf-winds

  • I don't know about this one. I don't know if I love it or if I want to throw it in the waste basket. I'm nervous about putting it out. I keep imagining everyone saying what was he thinking. Anyway, please be kind, if you think it's rubbish https://vocal.media/poets/sandcastle-dream

    https://vocal.media/poets/postcards-promises-unfulfilled - I did another one. I am sharing even though it closed because. Well. I wasn't sure if I had time or not. Enjoy...without being burdened to have to grade it lol!

  • Sincere apologies to Donna Fox: I wrote an acrostic poem about Sandcastles a couple of days after reading, enjoying and commenting on her excellent Sandcastle acrostic poem! My only defence is probable, undiagnosed dementia!!😵‍💫😬 Her excellent poem is below: https://vocal.media/poets/sandcastles-4d5pd01bh
