I was trawling through my archives, cleaning up, and found this. It was a prompt for a poem using the key words below, but for the life of me I can’t find the original source, I don’t know who created the prompt – if the key words ring any bells with anyone, let me know and I’ll pop in the link.
I would like to open the challenge to everyone else, here are the words – see where they take you, my effort follows below.
Uniform rows of grey trousers
devoid of dirt
flap in the breeze
As the laundry deadline looms
My children see cleanliness as a challenge
something to be tackled head on
or maybe jump in with both feet
preferably into a shallow muddy puddle
