Monday Poetry Prompt

10diceThis week’s prompt: write a 10 word poem

One of my favorite exercises! Brevity can really distill a situation or emotion down to its essence. Write a poem with just 10 words.

Or someone else
Cooking is Love –

Letting go of my ghosts
I heard my shackles drop.

Happy Writing!
