Warm greetings from my chilly neck of the woods! I hope one and all are well and ready for another challenge! A big thank you to all who participated in yesterday's challenge, as well as all those who supported their fellow participants. Always very grateful for that!
RULES: So, for today we have a 'take two' concept. Provided below, you will find word prompt choices and phrase prompt choices. YOU MUST PICK ONE OF EACH. Sorry for all caps, but it's necessary sometimes. Again, you will choose one word prompt AND one phrase prompt, and based on your selections, you will pen a poem or short piece. No long pieces today please. PLEASE STATE WHICH 2 YOU'VE CHOSEN in your caption area. Posts must be penned in English if you want me to be able to read them. I dabble in many languages, but I'm only fluent in that one.
IMPORTANT: Please be sure to mention that you're taking part in the challenge. That helps me sort out actual participants vs those who are using my hashtag in an opportunistic manner.
DURATION: Time of posting is approximately 12 am on Tuesday (per eastern standard time). This challenge will close 24 hours later at 12 am on Wednesday morning.
