Saturday Scribes Writing Prompt: April 24

Theme: What we need


Bonus Challenge: Twinned Poems

For twinned poems, the challenge is to write two poems that can stand alone, but are also somehow thematically linked. You can do the two poems side-by-side, so that they could potentially be read as one poem (like this one here), or they can be linked in some other way. You could even make the connection be that the poems are polar opposites of each other.

NaPoWriMo participants can feel free to post links to their poems here, whether they relate to the prompts or not. Prose and other forms of creative writing are also welcome, regardless of the source of inspiration.

As usual, remember comments are semi-moderated, so don’t worry if your comment doesn’t show up right away. Newcomers can learn more about Saturday Scribes here (including how to do a permalink to your post) and read the prompt guidelines here.

    My second twinned poem for this week:

    movie script ending

    My NaPoWriMo #25 was inspired by Sweet Talking Guy’s cut-and-paste approach, so I thought I’d post it here as well:

    A Hesitation Before Birth
