poetry 101 rehab: windows

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 WINDOWS.

windows inside never disclosing our worst side

windows inside never disclosing our worst

windows inside never disclosing our

windows inside never disclosing

windows inside never

windows inside


open, the windows

and let, what

is inside,


My starter for ten, entitled WINDOWS was inspired by, well, these windows in a railway station during a recent journey. What will your take on the keyword WINDOWS 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.

    Love your poem, Andy! The ambivalence. I’ve always felt conflicted about windows. I favor them kept shut and covered, living in town. We need to buy curtains for the new windows, and I’m thinking that there should be some window treatments to turn them into one-way mirrors, so we can see out, but nobody can see in.

            1. Why would it? I’ve never been disappointed by a prompt. Stumped, yes, but disappointed, no. I’m usually thinking, huh, never would have thought of that. How clever the prompt poster is.
