100 Word Challenge!
This is a challenge that originates from The Head’s Office blog which you can find here if you click! Basically every week there is a prompt which may be either a photograph, a phrase or even a couple of words. There is a total of 100 words that can be added to the phrase, and that’s your lot! Nice & succinct! There are many other blogs that take part in this challenge and I highly recommend browsing their contributions, just go to the Head’s Office and follow the links! Because they are only 100 words, they are really easy to read. *note to self, my teacher always told me off for starting sentences with ‘because’, must try harder!
I have decided to write a poem (of sorts) with the phrase that has been set this week, which is……drum roll….’The sun shone but…’ It’s the first poem I’ve written in about 10 years so it’s probably really bad, but fekkit, I’ll post it anyway. I think the rhythm’s wrong, but I cant work out a way to fix it. Suggestions welcome! I know sun and man don’t rhyme, but if you say the last bit with a posh southern accent, it’s all fine, ;O)
The sun shone but the rain fell.
The rain fell and the mist gloomed.
The mist gloomed and the sky greyed
The thunder boomed and the clouds stayed
the day was over, the night began
the lightening flashed over the man
the man with no coat, walking slowly
the light in his eyes gone with
the rain down the storm drain
the owl looks on from the field in
the weather he flies silently through to sever
the throat of a mouse who scutters by
the prints in the mud of the one
who is lost in the rain, lost to the sun.
