So last week we gave you thirteen romantic words and then asked you not to write us a romantic poem. It can be challenging to make words we normally associate with certain emotions work the other way around for us. In the same spirit of opposites attract, here are thirteen more words.
They aren’t romantic, but we want romance from you. Take these words and make us feel the love.
Remember to share the prompt and that every poem linked up for the week will be considered for this issue of the magazine. Submissions are now open, so send in your best work!
It’s back. Hearts. Flowers. Chocolate. More couples than you knew existed skipping their way out of the woodwork. Hallmark’s cash register chiming cha-ching! It’s February and the Valentines are letting their red and pink shine.
Let’s try something a little different in honor of this holiday for lovers. I’m going to give you a list of lucky number 13 words associated with Valentine’s Day. I want you to write about anything but romance. Non-romance poem, heavy in romantic words. Try to use all of the words. I think you can totally rock this challenge.
Remember to always bring more people to the party. You may not be in love with Valentine’s Day, but share the love with your friends anyway.
Remember any poems linked up to this post will be considered for this year’s anthology. Happy writing!
This weekend we’re celebrating one of those holidays people either love, or love to hate.
But in the spirit of love and romance and all those ooey-gooey feelings, I want you to write a love poem.
It’s not going to be that easy.
I want to challenge you to write a love poem from someone who loves you’s perspective. Did you catch that? That means a husband, girlfriend, partner, mother, grandfather, child, best friend, whoever you have in this world that loves you…You are going to write a love poem…to yourself…as if it were written by them.
Sound difficult? It is. It’s never easy to put yourself into someone else’s voice and try to write from their standpoint.
It’s even harder to write love poetry about yourself.
But I think you can do it. I KNOW you can do it.
And have you considered submitting to our Write for Us segment? We’d love to feature your work here on The Reverie! Click here for more information…
