I have extolled the virtues of Creative Copy Challenge to the point where some of you may be saying, Enough already.
The site is a writing prompt for the creative soul inside us all.
Twice a week, pro and non-pro writers take a crack at 10 words or phrases to create a story, poem or whatever written form they choose.
- Any style of poetry
- With a title
And then Justin recorded each entry. How fun.
Justin is an IT specialist with a gift for writing beautiful poetry. He also has a wonderful speaking voice for reading.
The following was my entry to the challenge. The words in bold are Justin’s submitted words.
The rumination of another time
A time we thought we knew
What’s lost we cannot determine
As the ostentatious masks our shame
What once we embraced
We let go in illogical haste
Our memory a fading past
The cohorts of excess smile in triumph
As timidly we let them be
The notorious mock us
In an admonishing loss of faith.
Can You Hear Me Now?
