Week #19 prompt: Season

Welcome to Writer’s Island.

We are pleased to now be in our fifth (5th) year here on the Island, providing writing prompts. New prompt(s) are posted every Saturday at 12:01 AM, U.S. East Coast Time. Consider the prompt in depth, then let inspiration carry you.

When you feel what you’ve written is ready to be read by the other Islanders, just post your link right here in the comments section at the bottom of this post. Please leave whatever expanded comment you wish as a part of your posted link. You can also reply directly to any other comment.

••> OK, NaPoWriMo 2011 is now behind us, time to resume our weekly writing party here on the Island. The Week #19 prompt for 2011 is “SEASON”, inspired by this older collage of mine entitled “Seasons”.

After the rigors of creating a poem a day during April’s National Poetry Month here in the US, thought I’d keep it light and pleasant with a reflection on season. Where I live, Spring is late in coming and for those in the southern hemisphere, it’s Fall; but I think we all find the change of seasons welcome and refreshing, so take a deep breath, and wax on about one or all of them. And remember, season can have meanings beyond that of the cyclical calendar periods — so maybe surprise us.

Relax, respond to the prompt when you’re ready — or just leave a comment to say hi! As always, welcome to the the Island!!! 😉

    Sunny Saturday in May confronted with machinery.

    This is a bit political but very much in season
    and I felt like giving it a voice

  3. I looked at “seasons” in a different way this morning:


  4. Thanks Rob, really enjoyed NaPoWriMo, thanks for providing the linking space for us.

    Here’s my Season:


  5. Hello, all! I’ve seen some of my Island friends since last week, but it’s nice to be back here after the absence.

    Rob…I want to say, again….thank you for the opportunity to have a place to post every day during NaPoWriMo…

    To everyone else…you’re great! Thanks for the month-long hug of encouragement!

    Here’s one I’ll post for now…it’s something I wrote in early March: The Seasons of Love.

    Perhaps I’ll be back with a fresh post, as well…


  6. Hello Everyone!
    Happy Saturday. What a beautiful collage of the seasons.

    Here’s my offering, which I’ve tweaked here and there for today:

  7. Spring Rain. Thank you for the prompt…it added to my morning.

  8. Now I’m craving spaghetti, seasoned well with Sweet Basil.

  9. I wrote this yesterday and it sort of fits the prompt. Nice to be back at normal island activity.


  10. A season of new beginnings.
    My first post here. Look forward to getting to know you.

  11. Mine is a season of change. It’s called “Closure?”
    It is my first post here. Hope to get to know you all.

  12. My first venture here! Read the prompt last night and let my imagination run wild while on night shift.

    A new political season.

    the return

  14. The seasons may be changing, but for now I’m assuming that they’re not.

  15. This is a reflection on nature, keeping in the spirit of the visual prompt… Breathless

  17. A song. Lyrics on blog plus a link to my music website. Hope y’all like this. Wrote it when I was in California, missing spring and summer in upstate New York. Peace, Amy
