Moonwashed weekly prompt
W3 poetry prompt
This week’s W3 poetry prompt was to write a series of at least five ‘atom poems’ on the theme of ‘childhood’ or ‘children’.
Let’s write poetry together!
When it comes to partnership, some humans can make their lives alone – it’s possible. But creatively, it’s more like painting: you can’t just use the same colours in every painting. It’s just not an option. You can’t take the same photograph every time and live with art forms with no differences.–Ben Harper (b. 1969)
