Weekend Writing Prompt #292: This weekend your challenge is to write a poem or a piece of prose in exactly 60 words using the word “Tenet”.

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!

    1/01/2023: God’s Tenets, No Resolutions
    by Yvonne Plyshette

    Fear & negative self talk are tenants that live in my mind, rent free
    I’ve evicted them, repeatedly
    They return, offensively

    So, I allow them their space,
    a tiny corner where they have
    no room to run amok

    And everyday, I am awestruck
    I allow God to renew my mind
    Thoughts of gratitude run, amok
    God’s tenets roam freely through me
