PROMPT #330 – I CHALLENGE YOU

Sometimes writing is a challenge. But as I’ve always prescribed… inspiration is found wherever we look. So we’re going to find our inspiration in the mundane… with a twist. We will write a “challenge” poem. At the end of our poem we will choose one of our poets and give them a topic upon which to muse. Any form, any style, any subject within reason are game. Watch for the gauntlet to be thrown in your direction and write your poem(s).

MARIE’S CHALLENGE:

EASIER SAID THAN MUM

She spewed out a detailed confession.
Her friend made a robust suggestion:
Don’t let your mouth gush –
You must learn to hush
when asked a rhetorical question.

WALT’S CHALLENGE:

CHALLENGE EVERYTHING

Do you take everything for granted?
And does your truth live within you?
Are questions that are never asked ever answered?
Is it right to set your own standards?
Or should you demand to know how to go?
Is the road less traveled always a good choice?
Does your voice ever come unraveled?
Do you allow no to be a solution?
Can roadblocks bring you to some conclusion?
