Poetry Challenge

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.








Sunday afternoon, 

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


Job done
