poetry 101 rehab: flora

Do you miss the Writing 201 Poetry course by the Daily Post? If so, then join this blogging challenge and let the poetry flow!

How does it work?

Feel free to answer the prompt, twist it or ignore it; write a poem of your own or share a poem by another author. Write about your inspiration, your creative process or other poetry related thoughts, but this is in no way obligatory. Nothing is obligatory in this challenge. The idea is to get together, talk poetry and have fun!

How can you take part?

Anyone can take part, anytime you want. Publish your poetry post and add a link to it by clicking on the Poetry 101 Rehab badge below or share your link in a comment. Use the tag Poetry 101 Rehab, so we can find each other in the Reader.


I will act as your host, and I’ll be here for you to reply to your comments, read your poetry, like and comment. While this post is the starting point for the challenge, do visit fellow poets in the link-up and chat to them on their blogs!

This week’s prompt is FLORA.

Surprised by Flora

They had come to walk

Found hope

My starter for ten, entitled FLORA was inspired by an unexpected find. What will your take on the keyword FLORA be? Blog about it in a poetry post and share your link in the comments section of this post and by clicking on the Poetry 101 Badge above.

  1. Spoilt for choice by this week’s prompt as I have been writing poems about plants for over 25 years. This is one of my most recent efforts https://oudeis2005.wordpress.com/2015/10/07/poetry-rehab-101-flora-mangoes-growing/ Hard, however, to better Mara’s outstanding contribution: perfect cool and cold control of prepositions, phonetics and line breaks. The second best poem I have read on here so far this year, in my opinion.
