Light

Let’s set aside dark and heavy for a day, and focus on light instead.

Ready to roll? All you need to do is…

  • Write a new post on your iblog in response to the prompt.

Need more ideas? Not sure what to write around Light? We’re here to help:

  • Describe the last time you felt positively lighthearted and carefree.
  • Candles, desk lamps, screen glare, the sun: tell us about the light source that you find most conducive to writing.
  • Share a photo with a particularly dramatic arrangement of light and shade.
  • Focus on any of the other (many) meanings of “light,” from “non-serious” or even “frivolous,” to “weightless” or “a prominent person in a specific field.”
  • Poets, you know what to do: stars, feathers, a dusting of snow, or a roaring fireplace are the stuff ballads and haiku are made of.

Open

In these days of lockdowns, closures, and physical distancing, what does Open mean to you?

Ready to roll? All you need to do is…

  • Tell us about a store, restaurant, or public venue that’s currently closed, and that you can’t wait to see reopen.
  • Write a haiku (or several) in which “open” is the final word.
  • Share a story about a time when you or someone you know acted with open-mindedness and curiosity.
  • Post a photo that invokes a feeling of openness (for you, at least) and tell us when, where, and why you took it.
