With the world as it is today, I’ve decided to extend the writing challenge on Patricia’s Pen to include flash fiction up to 500 words and poems up to 40 lines.
However there are a couple of rules to note.
Upbeat writing only – I think we all need uplifting things to read.
Poetry should be nature themed – what better time when the birds are so active and gardens filling up with flowers.
That means NO Covid-19 stories or poems.
Fancy having a go? Check the guidelines and submit. Happy writing!
I’ll start the challenge off with a poem I wrote back 2017 as part of my project when I was Poet in Residence at Worth Park.
Poetry in the Park
Pulham fountain flows,
on stained Jersey cows,
finches flit from tree to tree.
coots and moorhens chug.
Yarn bombs cuddle bark,
kiss orange fiery branches
under liquid amber’s umbrella.
