6/22 Weekly Creativity Challenge and New Prompt

Just my own (Kelly Warren) entry this week for our “summer vacation” prompt. Everyone else must be off enjoying their own summer vacation!  Here’s a quick little ditty I wrote to accompany a photo I took on our vacation last week to St. George Island. 

Sand dollar hunts and golf cart rides,
Lighthouse climbs and chasing tides,
Living in the moment to savor the feeling,
Of oyster shucking and boiled shrimp peeling,
Forgetting the hassles, the chores and the bills
To cherish a vacation and the cheap little thrills 
Only found in the summer with sand between your toes
And ice cream on your nose and salt air in your clothes.
Who knows the joys you’ll find when you just let go and soar? 

 bubbly toes

This week’s prompt: “Steaming”
Use the prompt however you like – literally, or a tangential theme. All media are welcome. Please e-mail your entries to by midnight eastern time on Sunday, June 28, 2009. Writers should include their submission directly in the body text of their e-mail. Visual artists and photographers should attach an image of their work as a jpeg. Enter as often as you like; multiple submissions for a single prompt are welcome. There is no limit to how many times you can win the weekly challenge, either. (You do not have to be a contributor to this blog in order to enter. All are invited to participate.) All submissions are acknowledged when received; if you do not receive e-mail confirmation of receipt within 48 hours, please post a comment here. Remember, the point is to stimulate your output, not to create a masterpiece. Keep the bar low and see what happens. Dusting off work you created previously is OK too. For more info, read the original contest blog post.
