Word Prompt



wk 239 smuggle

Weekend Writing Prompt #239: This weekend you challenge is to write a poem or a piece of prose in exactly 66 words using the word “Smuggle”.

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 (see note below).  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.
  • A note on the word: you can use any variation of the word (for example: call, calls, calling, called etc).  If you find you are struggling to use this week’s word you may substitute it for a synonym – just include a note to explain the swap.  Remember, this is supposed to be fun! 🙂

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

  27. Poem loading💆……….


    What a wicked smuggler you are
    Oh, dark angel of light.
    Wiggling thoughts in my mind
    Of things I wish to hide.

    How deceptive you are
    Oh, son of the morning.
    Shinning the light on filth
    Arousing in me feelings of guilt.

    Scum of the heavens!
    Where do you reside?
    You always show up without an invite.
    You can’t stay here;
    No vacancies in my soul.

  28. Here’s one more☺️


    When darkness smuggles its way through to the light in my soul I know I should put my shield up in defence. He always comes in unannounced and unnoticed by my conscious mind. My five senses can never really be sure of his presence. His fine artistic trickery is something to be admired; so beautiful and cunning I stand in awe, amazed.
