#vss365 #prompt Sep 18 – 25, 2021

Nancy Ayanna Wyatt, author of Presenter GuidelinesI’m having a blast participating in the #vss365 #prompt challenges on  Twitter. It’s for everyone – from people who’ve never written poems or prose before all the way to real Pros! You can participate in the #vss365 #prompt challenges, too! I tell you all about it when you Click Here.

However, the purpose of this post is to share my responses to the #vss365 challenges for this week (below) and to quickly point you to where, on Twitter, you can join in the fun. There, you also can find my submissions and those of other writers.

Note: in this one, I have combined the prompt words from #vss365 #prompt and #PBF (Poetry Battle Friday – also found on Twitter). It then can be placed in both challenges!

#vss365 #prompt #carve #PBF #shaddow

 I’ve always walked in my own #shaddow

Trying to #carve out a sliver from invisibility

That would allow me to flourish and be seen

In a White world in which I am unwelcome.

#vss365 #prompt #contemporaneous #rhyme

My response was spontaneous

To the challenge word, “Contemporaneous.”

Things that don’t #rhyme became extraneous.

Converging thoughts became simultaneous.

This result is temporaneous.

#vss365 #prompt #choir #anothertruestory #shortstory

Note: when this was too long to meet the Twitter requirements, I put it into a PowerPoint slide, which I then converted to a JPEG (single picture) image, so I could post it on Twitter. In that way, the only characters Twitter counted were these: #vss365 #prompt #choir #anothertruestory #shortstory.
