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 LOCKDOWN.

lock(ed) down
so tight
closed, guarded
nannied, harried
we can't (even) breathe
may we
come out
now, 
please
we're all growed up now
see?

My prompt today was inspired by recent events in Brussels, and if you feel so inclined you can read more about that on belgianstreets or in my recent post, ‘twentyfour’ here on this site. What will your take on the keyword LOCKDOWN 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.

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

windows

open, the windows

and let, what

is inside,

outside.


My starter for ten, entitled WINDOWS was inspired by, well, these windows in a railway station during a recent journey.
