Devereaux Frazier and Beth Amanda are currently hosting the Tuesday Writing Prompt Challenge which was started by our star writer Christine Ray. We hope to offer all of you something that will spark your creativity and willingness to participate.
The prompts are designed to be quick challenges that can be written in 10 to 15minutes, inspire you creatively, are fun, and get everyone interacting. Please post your response to the prompt in the comments below and show your fellow posters some love and support. All members of the Go Dog Go community, including Baristas, are welcome to participate. Feel free to share this post on your own blogs and/or Facebook.
Today I challenge you to write a poem called an “elfchen.” I was introduced to these little poems by poets on Instagram. I find them challenging yet fun to write. An elfchen is an 11 word poem written in 5 lines— Line 1=1word, Line 2=2words, Line 3=3words, Line 4=4 words, Line 5 =1 word. Lines 1 and 5 should not be the same word.
The fun in this challenge on Instagram is when you are tagged by someone, you must start your poem using that person’s LAST word as your FIRST. Today I give you 3 elfchens written my me. You may use the last word of any of the poems to start yours.
Cannot wait to see your brilliance today!!
