Searchingly Yours

( written for Weekend Writing Prompt #336 – Search by Sammi )

O! Poetry,
my words were searching for you..

Just the way..

the soul looks for salvation to attain,

the roses desperately want the rain,

the love gets complete with a bane,

the poet needs to have some pain,

the seasons looking for a change,

met you, O! poetry!!

My words, My destiny…

Weekend Writing Prompt #336 – Search

Good afternoon and till next time….


A word prompt to get your creativity flowing this weekend.  How you use the prompt is up to you.  Write a piece of flash fiction, a poem, a chapter for your novel…anything you like.  Or take the challenge below – there are no prizes – it’s not a competition but rather a fun writing exercise.  If you want to share what you come up with, please leave a link to it in the comments.

Word Prompt



Weekend Writing Prompt #336: This weekend your challenge is to write a poem or a piece of prose in exactly 52 words using the word “Search”.

The challenge is simple: each week you will be given an exact number of words you can use to write a poem or piece of prose.  You can use any format or style you like; go wherever your inspiration takes you.  The only rules are these:

  • your poem / prose must contain this week’s word (see note below).  The word does not have to count towards the exact word count total – it can be in the title, or the first letters of the lines of a poem can spell it out – you can be as creative as you want as long as it’s there somewhere.
  • the length of your poem / prose must match the number of words stated in this week’s challenge.  No more.  No less.
  • A note on the word: you can use any variation of the word (for example: call, calls, calling, called etc).  If you find you are struggling to use this week’s word you may substitute it for a synonym – just include a note to explain the swap.  Remember, this is supposed to be fun! 🙂

Can’t wait to read what you have come up with!
