I used to do this challenge with my partner when she was getting back into writing. It's quite simple really, each week I'll put up 5 themes/titles for poems and you need to write a poem a day based on the titles (you can use Saturday and Sunday to catch up).

It's really just a challenge for yourself, so have fun with it!

WEEK 1 CHALLENGE TOPICS:

5. Therapist

I already have some of my own writing based on these titles in my folder if you want to have a look. Happy writing! :)

Viv (viv_fortune) | 18 comments I'm not on too often, but I'll try this. I'll get something in soon.

Do I just put them on here?

Glad to have you on board, Viv. You can either post them here or (if you've got a folder set up or want a folder set up) you can post it in there. Good luck and have fun with it!

All you need to do is give it a try, Madison. It's just to get you writing poetry. It can be any type of poem you like - doesn't have to always make sense or rhyme.

Viv (viv_fortune) | 18 comments So here's a silly little poem that I wrote while trying to do this challenge. It's the one for "Hands".

Hands

I'll see. I might give it a go.

Well done, Viv. This wasn't silly at all. It was lovely!

Leo Borgelin | 3 comments We Were Once Gods

We were once Gods,
living high in the mountain tops
Free of order, roaming the free land,
The day was young, but it had yet to grow,
Giving time the opening to run aimlessly

But then the day grew old,
Time limited itself, order became my captor
holding me with its bare hands as time marks my new boundaries,
I now sit on a flat land with no ups and downs
Restricted to travel a day's worth abroad my new land,
Never again are we to reach our beloved land

The mountains were high
And the Greenland was low,
Never again we were to access our beloved land,
Foreign to us as we now know it,
But still strong in our roots
To only serve as a reminder to what kind of life we once lived,
As our only option we helped these new Gods grow,
Nurturing the Gods because they remind us of what was once ours,

For we too were once in their land,
As we had fallen from the mountain tops,
They will do accordingly,
Side by side in the land where time age,
No longer in the Mountains where youth persist
For this is the life of us Gods

Well done, Leo. Loved the imagery in this poem.
