Weekend Writing Prompt #47 – Vibrant Double Tetractys

Thank you, Sammi Cox, for the prompt – Vibrant

Write a piece of flash fiction, a poem, a chapter for your novel…anything you like.  Or take the challenge below.


Prose Challenge – Your character finds themselves in a world where everything is bright and vibrantly colored – or perhaps the opposite, where the world is in monochrome.  You choose.  In 150 words tell us where they are, how they got there and what they are going to do next.

Poetry Challenge – Write a non-rhyming poem in no more than 10 lines, that is inspired by the word and photo prompt.

Which warms the heart, fills the body with love

Sun shining
Moist ground
