Today’s challenge prompt took me a while to attempt. The prompt asks us to create a Replacement poem.
” Pick a common noun for a physical thing, for example, “desk” or “hat” or “bear,” and then pick one for something intangible, like “love” or “memories” or “aspiration.” Then Google your tangible noun, and find some sentences using it. Now, replace that tangible noun in those sentences with your intangible noun, and use those sentences to create (or inspire) a poem.”
I’d say this has been the prompt to stump me because of having to use random sentences. However, it’s not called a challenge for nothing. 😀
The common noun I chose was fireplace and I replaced it with passion.
