OCTOBER CREATIVITY CHALLENGE
My friend, Marvia Davidson, and Jamie Bagley, my daughter and friend, have established The Merry Kettle and Quill. They occasionally offer a challenge to encourage creativity. I enjoy participating, because it helps me keep writing. It is also challenging and lots of fun.
This month the challenge is called #21Daysof5Senses. Each day they have a one word prompt to inspire us to create.
There are only four days left for this challenge, but they will be having more in the future. Here are the prompts for this month. I’m sure you could use them as a boost to your own writing.
I am behind schedule for the latest three prompts – Cozy, Socks and Crisp. What follows is a poem inspired by them.
A Crisp Autumn Day
On this crisp Autumn day
Blowing breezes cause a chill
I hurry on the way
To my home upon the hill
Next to the cozy fire
Warm fuzzy socks await me
To rest is my desire
Now where did I put my key
Steaming cocoa beckons
Laced with a touch of cayenne
One sip and in seconds
Warmth engulfs me there and then
Wrapped in a flannel shawl
I lounge in a comfy chair
Shadows play on the wall
As flames dance without a care
I would encourage you to check out The Merry Kettle and Quill for yourself. Maybe you would enjoy a challenge sometime.
Other Poems for the Challenge
Here are a couple of my earlier offerings to their October challenge. The first one is from the second prompt: Fire.
This next one is from the 14th prompt: Sparkle.
I hope you enjoyed these offerings of mine. May they inspire you to create, too!
