Weekend Writing Prompt #57 – Symmetry

A word prompt to get your creativity flowing this weekend.  How you use the prompt is up to you.  Write a piece of flash fiction, a poem, a chapter for your novel…anything you like.  Or take the challenge below – there are no prizes – it’s not a competition but rather a fun writing exercise.  If you want to share what you come up with, please leave a link to it in the comments.

Word Prompt



The challenge is simple: each week you will be given an exact number of words you can use to write a poem or piece of prose.  You can use any format or style you like; go wherever your inspiration takes you.  The only rules are these:

  • your poem / prose must contain this week’s word.  The word does not have to count towards the exact word count total – it can be in the title, or the first letters of the lines of a poem can spell it out – you can be as creative as you want as long as it’s there somewhere.
  • the length of your poem / prose must match the number of words stated in this week’s challenge.  No more.  No less.

Can’t wait to read what you have come up with!

  8. Morning Sammi 🙂

    The challenge gets harder and harder but remains just as entertaining. Thank you.

    Here are my 10 words for this week’s challenge..

    ~ Symmetry ~ By ~ Dewin Nefol ~
    Falcon’s fulcrum,
    Balanced equilibrium,
    Symmetry either side.
    Waiting to fly.

    Thanks for setting the challenge. Have a happy weekend! Sunshine is here, drink in the dew! 🙂

    Namaste 🙂

        Thank you.
        I started with the word fulcrum,
        The rest flowed-on from there.
        With these reduced word challenges,
        Which aren’t my usual fayre,
        I take a quick peek at the word of the week,
        Then go with whatever comes to mind,
        If I think too much I just lose touch:
        In as much that my rhyme ends up,
        Being torn up, or simply left as twaddle!

        Have a great weekend.

        Take care. Namaste 🙂

      • All is well here, thank you and my weekend has got off to a productive start, so I can’t grumble. How long that will last though…who can tell.

        I hope all is well with you and that your own weekend is fulfilling expectations and full of the brightest of blessings 🙂

      • Grumbling can be an effective pass-time in as much that it identifies what is annoyingly present and most apparent on a persons mind. It’s also a waste of time if one doesn’t then act to rectify a situation 🙂 Of course, I hope your weekend remains grumble free and productive.

        Thank you for asking: my weekends never quite fulfil expectation – if they did I wouldn’t be on planet Earth at all. Hence I grumble an awful lot but can do nothing about stopping the world and getting off. O well, ce la vie.

        Enjoy two days of freedom from whatever it you do Monday to Friday. Best wishes, take care,

        Namaste 🙂
