Welcome to our W3 Poetry Prompt, which goes live on Wednesdays at The Skeptic’s Kaddish.
You may click here for a fuller explanation of W3; but here’s the ‘tldr’ version:
The main ingredient of W3 is a weekly poem written by a Poet of the Week (PoW), which participants read before participating in the prompt.
The second ingredient is a writing guideline (or two) provided by the PoW. Guidelines may include, but are not limited to: word counts, poetic forms, inclusion of specific words, and use of particular poetic devices.
After five days, when the prompt closes, the PoW shall select one participant’s poem as the W3 prompt for the following week, and its author becomes the next PoW.
Simple enough, right?
Okie dokie ~ Let’s do this thing!

Last week’s W3 poem
This week’s W3 prompt poem (above), composed by Punam, was written in response to last week’s W3 prompt poem, which Sadje wrote:
‘Narcissi- How I love them’, a poem by Sadje
Delicate beauty Often underrated I love it’s fragrance Takes me back to my childhood For every year near my birthday I’d see bouquets of narcissi on the Flower stands, in hand of vendors Offering them to passersby cheap Just one whiff of it’s intoxicating scent And I’m ready to open my wallet Narcissi, adorning my living room For weeks till I’m ready to replace The old bouquet with a fresh one
