For this week’s prompt, write a free poem. Think free parking or a free space (in a board game). Think fat free, care free, or stone free (for all the Jimi Hendrix fans out there). Or think words with free in them, a la Freedom of Information Act. You’re free to take it in any free-wheeling direction you wish.
Take your writing to new levels with the one-of-a-kind bundle of writing products called Getting Started in Writing premium collection!
The bundle includes an independent study workshop, four e-books, seven paperbacks, and a handful of webinars–all at one low discounted price.
Here’s my attempt at a Free Poem:
tag was a silly game we played
when we were young. running
around until someone tagged you
to make you freeze. but maybe
hide & seek was sillier. or just
tag, because the same kid always
ended up being IT and unable
to catch the others. & then
regardless, we just liked to run
& hide & jump fences & eventually
hear the call, ollie ollie oxenfree,
which meant figuring out what’s next.
