dec wedsThis week I’m late with my post for Challenge Wednesday by Jeremy of The Boi Poet. But better late than never. 🙂 The idea of these challenges is to use the given prompts to create a piece of flash fiction (100-500 words) or a poem. 914-20 lines).

One line taken out of context from a poem can lead to a whole new dimension of creativity. The idea of this challenge therefore is to create what comes to mind from lines of poetry.

This week’s lines of poetry are below and we are to link back to Jeremy:

  • the miles of empty and sparkling blue – Sailing on Lake Superior by Kirsten Dierking
  • the little nub of dream – Wedding cake by Naomi Shihab Nye
  • dripping rain like golden honey – Storm Ending by Jean Toomer


miles and miles of emptiness
stares at nothingness
as the dream pipe burst
sparkling water gush out
dripping to fill the
the wide yawn of hope
that fuels hollow eyes
rain is golden honey to them
and they lap the sweetness of the droplets
grateful for the watering
of parched earth and throats
dreams can come true
and hearts may be gleeful
but the goddess whose dreamboat is now empty
goes on chanting for more dreams
to fulfill a people’s need for salvation
goddess that she is
conjures up more dreams
but dreams can be hollow, you know
