2019 Poetry Challenge - Week Four

IP Poetry Challenge Week 4 Words IP Poetry Challenge Week 4 Poem

Week 4 words from @teasense: sky, heart, wind, follow, crave.

my sky heart opens
the wind follows
and I crave


Here are the words and my poem for the fourth week of the 2019 Poetry Challenge.

I've taken a little bit of a liberty with this week's words and used follows instead of follow. The words turned into a vey short poem. It's more of a verse really. Or a haiku if there were enough syllables but it's even too short to be a haiku. It wrote itself and when I wanted to make it longer, it resisted gently but firmly. 'No,' it said, 'I want to be short.'

If you want to join the 2019 Poetry Challenge, head on over to my Instagram account where I post the words for the week on Mondays in my story. Be sure to tag me and use the hashtags #2019poetrychallenge and #livepoetsclub. 

If you don't want to write a poem, you can still be part of the 2019 Poetry Challenge. Send me five random words and I'll use them in a poem. Either DM me on Instagram with the words or send me an email (indrani at indraniperera dot com).

Happy writing!
