Simply 6 Minutes: 11th January

A beautiful poem! Read Di’s work!


Christine of Stine Writing is our hostess for the Simply 6 Minutes photo challenge and what a stunner she has given us this week. Find out more here
You never see me, but I am there,
Watching, waiting, yearning
For recognition and acceptance.
The breeze teases my skin of clouds,
My eyes focus on forever,
My lips set in a firm line.
I am here, these trees are my home,
Perhaps shielding me from view
As the leaves gently whisper…….
The birds are my company,
Singing their joy in the branches
That tickle and caress my being.
Just once I am captured,
A trick of the light but free to roam
And filter into the skyline.
Yes, I am here, watching,
Waiting and yearning
To be one of You.

Simply 6 Minutes – Welcome to the Challenge: 01/11/2022

Welcome to the 6 minute challenge!

Today’s prompt is:

7a19d77d465fedfbd5dfe9dbfbd36958--tree-faces-do-you.jpg (640×960)

*****For any participants that do NOT like restrictions, please feel free to participate in any way you would like. It is great to read the contributions!****

  1. Set up a timer or sit near a clock so you can keep track of the six minutes you will be writing.
  2. You can either use one of the prompts (photo or written) or you can free-write.
  3. Get ready and write for 6 minutes, that is it! Can you write a complete story? Can you think of a new Sonnet? Can you write 400 words? 400? 500? There are no restrictions on what kind of writing you do, but you should try to be actively writing for six minutes.
  4. After you are done writing, include your word count and then post back to this page #Simply6Minutes or include your link in the comments section. Pingbacks are enabled.
  5. *Feel free to leave your work completely unedited. I believe it is good to see, especially for new writers, that even very seasoned writers don’t write a perfect first draft.*
  6. Have fun, challenge yourself if you’d like, read and respond to others’ posts.

Thank you for participating!
