Do you believe that our souls sing
A song of distress when we’re sad
A joyful tune when we are happy
That’s why we resonate with the music
Which is suited to our mood at the time
I don’t want happy songs when my heart is heavy
With sadness and heartbreak weighing it down
But it loves to sing in loud happy notes
When there is joy and happiness lifting it up
And the time I am hovering in between
Then I will be cheered by a catchy tune
Some cheeky lyrics will dispel the clouds
Looming on the horizon of my life
Word count: 103, including the prompt word.
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. 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.
Can’t wait to read what you have come up with!
