Weekend Writing Prompt #49 – Random (3) – Unhappy Marriage Epiphany

Thank you, Sammi Cox, for this word prompt –  Fortitude – Resolute – Epiphany, catching up on challenges that I missed while writing for two other challenges in the month of April.


Prose Challenge – Write a story in 75 words or less that is inspired by the photo prompt and one of the word prompts.

Poetry Challenge – Write a poem of any length that includes all three of the word prompts and where one of the lines is repeated at least once.

Unhappy Marriage Epiphany

family fights
holding no values
epiphany, change now
wedding day vows memories
resolute is important
marriage failure on the horizon
determination to correct the faults
fortitude means lots of courage needed
beam of light sparkling in her blue eyes
as I told her unwavering
our life is changing right now
up to me to stay strong
with newfound values
will be gone

Double Tetractys A decastich (10-line stanza) with an emphasis on the syllabic count of each line. Syllabic count: 1-2-3-4-10-10-4-3-2-1 It should express a complete thought and may be on any theme and express any mood. Rhyme is optional.


    • Thanks, it took me a while to write that one, I came back the second day and changed it, I wanted it to tell a story, syllable counting made it a lot harder, I was happy with the final draft.
      Have a great weekend and thanks for all those nice comments.
