Wednesday: Imagine the world underwater. Try to describe movement towards something in a free verse poem.
Thursday:  We’re bringing back one of our old prompts! Take ten lines to describe your favourite junk food.
Friday: Write a poem that reads like a refreshing sip of gin on your front porch after work.
Saturday: Write a poem in the style of a musical instrument that you love. It can even be lyrics.
