7-Minute Poetry Challenge #18-Moody Blues

Did you miss me? More importantly, did you miss last week's prompt. Sorry. I was lost.. We zipped off to The Bahamas for a few days. If you are clever, you have already subscribed to Cindy's blog, and so you're #18 is finished. Yeah!

If you are feeling a teensy bit jealous because I was in The Bahamas (italics intended along with a whooo-whooo) this might make you feel better: It was unseasonably cold, overcast, windy & rainy--definitely weather for this prompt. Here we go!

Poetry Challenge #18

Moody Blues  

Pick two vowel sounds. Make a list of words that use each sound. Write two verses of a poem—use one vowel sound in one verse and the other in the second. Try to use it in as many words as you can. What mood does each sound create for your poem? Do you want your end words for each line to rhyme or not?

Set the timer for 7 minutes.

Start writing!

Don’t think about it too much; just do it.
