Word Prompt



wk 259 spotlight

Weekend Writing Prompt #259: This weekend you challenge is to write a poem or a piece of prose in exactly 21 words using the word “Spotlight”.

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!

  28. Let the rain drip down
    On to a leaf
    Didn’t make a sound
    All the way down into the inner tree
    It fell down onto another leaf
    Reached and touched the brown soft wood
    All the way down to the roots
    It gave the tree life
    That rain stop deserve just own spotlight.
