Genre Challenge – June 11

Every day for the month of June, I will host a genre-based writing prompt. You can use the photo provided as part of the story or as inspiration; it’s up to you–just have fun!

Today’s challenge: Golden Shovel poem

From the Writer’s Digest, the rules for a golden shovel are:

  • Take a line (or lines) from a poem you admire.
  • Use each word in the line (or lines) as an end word in your poem.
  • Keep the end words in order.
  • Give credit to the poet who originally wrote the line (or lines).
  • The new poem does not have to be about the same subject as the poem that offers the end words.
