Opposites Attract: For this challenge, I provide one word and a list of its antonyms. The challenge is to use the prompt word AND one (or more) of its antonyms in some form of writing (or creative work).
Today’s word: grand.
Antonyms: humble, unheroic, unimposing, unimpressive.
Elemental Writing: For this challenge, we will explore one of the four elements: air, earth, water, fire. This week’s focus is Fire. Simply use the word and/or image provided and be inspired by the natural element.
Today’s prompt and image: desire
Characteristic of many failed relationships
and too many broken hearts
are the ones that begin
with a lustful desire
that burns like a fire
deep within the body’s senses
an inferno that is deceitful
causing one to lose their common senses
and start believing they’re “in love”…
Grand it can be while it lasts
fulfilling empty needs until it’s not enough
and becomes a smoldering ember
that humbles the desperate lovers
into feeling like fools for believing
lust is love when it is actually death.
