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!
I. The prompt poem:
‘Trouble’, an acrostic poem by Suzette Benjamin
Trouble’s sepulchre; Redacted light, monochrome focus — Overgrown blurred mausaleums, Utmost oppression. But, somehow those Light and temporary afflictions Exchange for us riches beyond measure.
II. Suzette’s prompt guidelines

Last week’s W3 poem
This week’s W3 prompt poem (above), composed by Suzette, was written in response to last week’s W3 prompt poem, which Punam wrote:
‘Love & Time’, four elfchen poems by Punam
Stars you laid at my feet as promised. Called it love Love remains immeasurable however many stars you may pluck from skies
Race against clocks I try hard to be ahead of time Time waits not wants not me relentless its movement against itself
